Saint George Orthodox Christian Cathedral is located in downtown Charleston, just across from the Town Center Mall.

Our community serves about 400 families and seeks to bring the light of True Orthodox Christianity to Kanawha Valley and all of West Virginia.

While Orthodox Christianity has existed from the day of Holy Pentecost, it arrived in the Kanawha Valley in 1892. The Syrian and Lebanese immigrants who came to serve the coal mines brought with them the Orthodox Christian faith, and it has since been alive in Charleston!

St George Cathedral is a parish of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America and serves as the primary episcopal see of His Grace Bishop Thomas, Bishop of the Diocese of Charleston, Oakland and the Mid-Atlantic.

We regularly hold Divine Services which are streamed on our website and on YouTube, regardless of your faith, please join us and discover the treasure of Orthodox Christianity!

"All of creation is a burning bush of God's energies."
