Our community has been bearing witness and living the gospel for over 100 years. St. George Cathedral is located in the heart of Oakland on the corner of the Boulevard of the Allies and Dawson Street, only five minutes from the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. We have a growing parish full of parishioners from all ages and backgrounds.
Our Mission is to be dedicated to putting the gospel into action and bearing witness to the world. We shall accomplish this through outreach to our neighbors, members, and all who are seeking the true faith. We are dedicated to maintaining a parish environment that is warm, loving, healthy, nurturing, and healing.
Our vision is our Church being steeped in Tradition. Our community as possessing and carrying the peace of Christ to others. The parish serving as a nurturing and social family environment.

Welcome to St. George Antiochian Orthodox Cathedral in Pittsburgh (Oakland), PA. We are part of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Our lineage of bishops and Patriarchs can be traced down to the original apostles of the New Testament. We are proud of our apostolic succession and to be the church of the New Testament. We are a church that is steeped in Tradition and Asceticism. The Orthodox Church teaches the mercy and love of God but balanced with the belief that we are all called to spiritual growth, to walk according to God and not according to the world, and to live in communion with God on a daily basis.
Our Cathedral community is a very active and dynamic church. There are many organizations in which members can be involved and liturgical services are offered and held throughout the week. We offer an Applied Orthodox Spirituality group that meets every Wednesday evening, after vespers, at 7:45PM. The topics of discussion are about how to apply our Orthodox faith, with its rich spirituality and asceticism, to our daily life and the challenges that come with this application. The Cathedral has been blessed with two powerful and outstanding choirs, a traditional four part choir as well as with a traditional Byzantine choir which recently released its second CD.
Visitors are welcome. Please feel free to tour the website and to view the photos that offer a glimpse into our deep, rich liturgical life. We hope you visit and find a spiritual home at St. George.
