St. George Orthodox Church in Memphis, TN
St. George Orthodox Church, of the Orthodox Church in America, needed a new home designed to promote the growth of their faithful and the much needed space for worship and fellowship. Their prayers were answered in locating and acquiring an existing Greek Orthodox parish campus for sale within beautiful Memphis, Tennessee.
OCCIF, along with the Diocese of the South of the OCA, was able to provide the new first mortgage, putting things in motion to get t parish settled during the later weeks of the Lenten season. The last Divine Liturgy served at Saint Seraphim took place on March 26th. The first Divine Liturgy celebrated on their new campus took place on April 2nd, with enough time to prepare for and celebrate Holy Week and PASCHA with a little room to spare. Glory to God!
