St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church practices Orthodox Christian worship and hospitality with a Middle Eastern flavor. The liturgy is primarily in English with some anthems and prayers in Arabic. Oregon’s first Syrian Orthodox family arrived in Portland in 1889, but the first church building wasn’t purchased until 1930. Constructed between 1998 and 2004, the new St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church is an impressive modern building inspired by and incorporating Byzantine art and architecture.
