Historical facts about the Real man who was later Saint George

England's patron saint, a fourth century Christian martyr, is also

patron saint of Georgia and the city of Moscow.

Very little is known about the real St George. He is thought to

have been born into a noble Christian family in the late third

century in Cappadocia, an area which is now in Turkey. He

followed his father's profession of soldier and became part of

the retinue of the Emperor Diocletian. The emperor ordered

the systematic persecution of Christians and George refused to

take part. In 303, he was himself tortured and executed in

Palestine, becoming an early Christian martyr.

The legend of George slaying a dragon and rescuing an innocent

maiden from death is medieval. St George's Day is celebrated in

England on 23 April, reputed to be the day of George's

martyrdom in 303

Remember Saint George is not only the patron Saint of England

but also the patron Saint of soldiers

Episcopal Church {THE CHURCH of ENGLAND} Creed “WHAT WE BELIEVE” If you can support this belief set, you are very welcome to join this church. Saint George Chapel.  The Creeds are statements of our basic beliefs about God” (Book of Common Prayer, p. 851). We will always have questions, but in the two foundational statements of faith – the Apostles’ Creed used at baptism, and the Nicene Creed used at communion – we join Christians throughout the ages in affirming our faith in the one God who created us, redeemed us, and sanctifies us. The Apostles' Creed I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth; I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.     He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.     He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.     He descended to the dead.     On the third day he rose again.     He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.     He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints,     the forgiveness of sins the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.                                                                                                                             (BCP, p. 96) The Nicene Creed We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty,     maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God,     eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light,     true God from true God, begotten, not made,     of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made.     For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven:     by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,     and was made man.     For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried.     On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven     and is seated at the right hand of the Father.    He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,         and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,     who proceeds from the Father and the Son.     With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.     He has spoken through the Prophets.     We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.     We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.     We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
