Message from the Church President, Peter Bajich:
Dear St. George Parishioners, Hristos Voskrese! Voistinu Voskrese!

A big thank you to those who attended our Annual St. George Slava Celebration with our honored Kumovi of Jelena and Joel Miller.  A big thanks goes out to the Kolo and their chairs for putting on the two meals and for the Bajich Brothers Orchestra for providing the entertainment.
Although the crowd on Saturday evening for both vespers and the dinner celebration was not well attended, those who were there had a great meal and enjoyed the entertainment.
Sunday’s attendance was much better and again we were all treated to a great meal and entertainment.  Hopefully, our future Slava Celebrations will be given greater priority from all of us as this is our time to remember all of our deceased family members, Kumovi and friends who sacrificed so much to build and grow our St. George community in Kansas City.
Below is a link to some pictures from the weekend.  Enjoy!

Ancient Christianity in the KC area, via Serbia
The current church building was constructed in 2006 and is located near College Boulevard and Pflumm Road in Lenexa.

Apostolic Christianity in Serbia (located in Southeast Europe) dates back to the seventh century. Christianity eventually became the state religion, and the Serbian Orthodox Church received ecclesiastical independence in 1219 with the consecration of St. Sava as the nation's archbishop. Orthodox Christianity became the country's primary religion and remains so to this day.

During a wave of immigration to the United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries , a Serbian community was established in Kansas City, Kansas. The community constructed a meeting hall, which held occasional services until St. George Church was chartered on April 18, 1906 in a home that was remodeled into a small church building. A more permanent church building and meeting hall was constructed in Kansas City, Kansas at the corner of Bethany and Lowell in 1925. This remained the location of the parish until 2006, when the new St. George church building (pictured above) was consecrated in Lenexa, Kansas. St. George Church continues the tradition of Orthodox Christianity that can be traced from that original Serbian community in Kansas City, to Europe, to the Apostles.

Visitors are welcome at our church services and special events. Contact Father Radomir if you have questions.

St. George Church Iconostasis

One of the first things that strikes a non-Orthodox visitor to an Orthodox church is the prominent place assigned to the Holy Icons. The Iconostasis (Icon-screen) dividing the Altar from the rest of the church is covered with them, while others are placed in prominent places throughout the church building. Sometimes even the walls and ceiling are covered with them in fresco or mosaic form. The Orthodox faithful prostrate themselves before them, kiss them, and burn candles before them. They are censed by the Priest and carried in processions.
