About Saint George
/ About
Our Church

Saint George Anglican Church is a growing worshiping community in Auburn, AL.  We are part of the ancient Christian Church which was established on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1 – 4).  This Faith was brought to Glastonbury, England in 38 A.D. by St. Joseph of Arimathea and flourished.  This faith came to N. America and continues to grow and flourish today.

Who we are: We are a spiritual worshiping community who are:

1. Grounded in Christ Jesus (Matthew 16:16)

2. Hold to the inerrancy of the inspired biblical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments (2 Timothy 3:16)

3. Sacramental—we receive the holy sacraments of God (Matthew 26:26 – 28; James 5:14)

4. Traditional—we hold to the faith once given to all the saints (Jude 3)

5. Communal—we live our faith in community (Hebrews 10:25)

We are a parish church in the Jurisdiction of the Armed Forces and Chaplaincy.  As such, St. George is more than just a place where people come to worship the living God (although it is first and foremost that!). St. George strives to be a vibrant faith community of people of all ages and backgrounds—families, couples, working professionals, youth, and children.  In addition, we actively reach out to Auburn University students, faculty, and staff.  Together, we are living our faith in accordance with the commandments of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the sacred practices for a spiritual life in the Anglican Church.

We are affiliated with the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA), which unites 112,000 Anglicans in nearly 1,000 congregations across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The ACNA is recognized as a province of the global Anglican Communion, which includes national and territorial churches in traditionally Anglican countries around the globe. There are over 85 million Anglican Christians in the world today—the third largest Church in the world!

If you want to worship in spirit and in truth, we invite you to “come and see.”  Whether you are on a spiritual journey or just wanting to visit a local Anglican Church, you will be warmly welcomed at St. George Church. We are always honored to have visitors join us for prayer and worship.

Our Priest

Father John Salimi and Father Deacon Joe Saloom

St. George’s priest recently retired, and we have launched a search for our next full-time priest.

In the interim, Father John Salimi will be consecrating the elements and Father Deacon Joe Saloom will be delivering the homily.  Father John and his family joined St. George in the fall of 2022 after they sought asylum from religious persecution in Iran.  We are blessed to have him with us as he serves his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Father Deacon Joe Saloom is a founding member of St. George and a lifelong Anglican.  We have been incredibly blessed by his leadership as we move forward into our next chapter.

Please join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 and worship with us as St. George!
