All Saints Greek Orthodox Church: Canonsburg, PA
“In May, 1995 the Opening of the Doors was officiated by His Eminence Metropolitan Maximos of Pittsburgh, and the faithful of All Saints Greek Orthodox Church in Canonsburg had a new home. Today, the parish hosts approximately 400 stewardship units, and over 200 youth from newborn to young adults. We are also blessed with having 5 Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate who are also very supportive of the parish, Metropolis, and Archdiocese.
Since then, the parish has not only grown in size and membership, but also in its spiritual outreach. One area of outreach is our mission work including Project Mexico, plus sending emergency aid kits to the Hurricane Katrina victims, organizing a clothing, food and school supplies drive for the needy, and the various & many philanthropic projects by our Philoptochos.
Another of the more memorable events in the community’s spiritual life was the outreach mission project which the parish adopted in 2002. By the Grace of the Holy Spirit, the parishioners donated, through OCMC, the necessary funds to build a sister parish in the village of Kasikizi, Tanzania. Fr. George led a construction crew made up of a parishioner and others from the U.S. and Canada to participate in the building project. In the summer of 2004 the parish was invited by His Grace Bishop Jeronymos of Bukoba to be present at the Consecration of the new All Saints Church in Tanzania. The parish decided to cover all the expenses of the Consecration and to send Fr. George and his son, Micah, to represent the community. To this day this project continues to be a blessing to all of us.
We could literally write a book about our parish, from its humble beginnings in East End Canonsburg, to the gorgeous Byzantine structure that lights up the night skies near I-79. So many of the ‘yiayias’ and ‘papous’ that have given us hope, strength and courage – and have taught their children’s children to persevere – we can’t mention them all, but we know that their prayers are always with us. Their legacy has been left for us – a mighty one that shows us that, with God’s protection and guiding Light and Love – there’s nothing we can’t do. We’ll always remember them fondly – our Archons and Benefactors – From the many men who envisioned a growing Greek Orthodox community to the women who were the backbone of the families – our All Saints parish continues to thrive because of them. We offer thanksgiving to God for all these abundant blessings and the opportunity to grow in His Name.”
We invite you to watch our services live from the convenience of your home.
