St. George Greek Orthodox Church in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago's north side and was established in 1923 by Greek immigrants. St. George remains an important center for worship and fellowship for its parishioners and friends from throughout the Chicagoland area. Through the gifts of the holy spirit in faith and determination these new Americans were able to purchase the Lutheran Church at 2701 N. Sheffield Avenue and adapt it for Orthodox worship in time for services to be held in April 1923.
