After nearly 100 years, St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church will be saying goodbye to Bridgeville.
This spring, the parish plans to move into a new church building at 3230 Washington Pike, near Portman Farms and Giant Eagle in South Fayette.
St. George has been in Bridgeville since about 1920. Its first quarter-century was spent in a small church on McLaughlin Run Road. In 1950, the parish moved to its current location on Dewey Avenue.
So what happens to the Dewey Avenue church building when St. George’s leaves? According to The Almanac:
[Father Jason] DelVitto said there have not been any decisions made about its Dewey Avenue building, which the church has occupied since the early 1950s. “It is on hold until we find an appropriate buyer,” DelVitto said. “The buyer will have to use the building for an honorable purpose.”
The furniture and the religious items—including the stained glasses—will be moved to the new church, The Almanac reports.
