Parish History

1997

Our mission Church was formed in late 1997 in Prescott Valley, Arizona where it celebrated its first Divine Liturgy at the Prescott Valley Public Library.

2000

In May, 2000, we moved our services to the offices of Dr. George Rizk in Prescott. As our congregation grew, services were moved from Dr. Rizk’s office to their lovely new home. Services began to be celebrated once a month on Thursday evenings.

2001

On a cold January 13th, 2001, held its first Divine Liturgy at the Monday Club in Prescott, which afforded much needed room for worship, storage, and kitchen.

Soon after the Church began meeting at the Monday Club, a portable iconostasis was purchased. Four large icons were also purchased, and a portable altar built, and on June 30th, the first Divine Liturgy with the new altar and iconostasis was celebrated.

2002

In 2002, our mission continued growing and met several significant milestones. Membership increased. Stewardship increased. Spiritually, the Church was growing, too. Bible studies increased every month. Reader’s services were celebrated on Saturdays when Divine Liturgy was not, providing opportunities for parish fellowship, prayer and worship on a weekly basis.

2003

In 2003, the parish was incorporated and officially received under the Greek Orthodox Diocese of San Francisco.

2006

In 2006, Archimandrite Gabriel (Cooke) of blessed memory came on board as the first full-time priest. Fr. Gabriel was a long time Arizona priest and well known for his missionary zeal and experience. He fell asleep in the Lord in September of 2009. Memory Eternal!

2008

The parish moved again, in 2008, to the Gurley Street location, and quickly grew to fill the new worship space and parking.

We gained a full-time priest, on loan from the OCA, Fr. John Peck.

2009

In Sept. 2009, we received the news that our parish was officially placed under the heavenly protection of the St. George the Great Martyr.

2012

Fr. Apostolos Hill became our new full-time priest.

2013

Fr. Apostolos Hill was granted a release from the pastorate of St. George GOC to be reassigned to another parish within the Metropolis. Fr. Virgil Suciu served as a visiting priest

2014

Fr. Jeffrey Frate, on loan from the OCA,  became our full-time priest.
