As an Orthodox Christian, establishing membership at St. Paul’s is easy: simply complete and submit your Pledge Form and the Parishioner Information Form. Your financial commitment is based upon your resources and your dedication to the work of our Lord and His Church Without your full financial, physical and spiritual support, the work of the ministries of St. Paul cannot reach the level needed to meet the task which exists. If you are not presently an Orthodox Christian, you are encouraged to speak with Father John regarding membership.
The focal point of our community is our Church. St. Paul's was built originally as the Lawton Memorial, listed in the Historic Savannah Register as a Victorian-style building. Converted in 1941 into a house of Orthodox Christian worship the style of the building is cross-in-square adapted to Orthodox liturgical tradition. Ample parking is available behind the Church and in the surrounding areas.
Across from our church on West Anderson Street is the Hellenic Center, which houses our church offices, meeting rooms, kitchen, gymnasium and classrooms. The Hellenic Center offers six unique meeting spaces, which are available for full- or half-day rentals. The Hellenic Center can host between 10 and 450 people and provides on-site parking. Please visit our Facebook Site for more information and call the Church Office to arrange an appointment.
We also have our Bookstore located in the lobby of the Center. Along side the Center, next to the Meeting room, is Tassey’s Courtyard, completed in memory of Speros Tassopoulos. Tassey's Courtyard is a beautifully landscape courtyard, which is used for functions as well as quiet reflection.
