About Calvary- St. George’s Church
St. George’s Episcopal Church is a part of the Parish of Calvary-St. George’s. Its ministry began in 1749 when it was founded by Trinity Church Wall Street. The Church moved to its present location on Stuyvesant Square in 1846. A 1976 merger with three other nearby Episcopal Church congregations under the leadership of the Rev. Dr. Thomas F. Pike formed the current parish, currently led by the Rev. Jacob A. Smith. Visit www.calvarystgeorges.org for more information on events, ministries, and ways to connect.
