Spring Greek Festival:
We are days away from our Greek Festival which is scheduled for May 5, 6 and 7. This is our major annual fundraising event and we ask for help from all our Parishioners. Preparations are well underway and a great deal of hard work and dedication has been put into making the many Greek foods right here in our church by our committed parishioners. We ask you to please support our Parish by donating your time and talents to this important fundraiser. Please consider helping in the following ways:
- Become a sponsor for the weekend. A great way to promote your business or support the Church if you can’t attend or volunteer. Contact Elaine Manoliadis at 973. 865.9452 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Food Donations are always needed. Contact Stephanos Frangos at 973.941.4261 or email@example.com to see which items are still needed.
- Promote the Festival. Please share the news on social media and pick up signs from the Church to advertise in your local community.
Greek Festival Sponsorship:
Please consider being a Sponsor of our upcoming Greek Festival by making a minimum $100 “Friends of St. George” donation to help defray our many festival food expenses. This is ideal for individuals or families who are unable to work a significant amount of time during the festival, but want to support it. This will cover one 4-hour shift of additional labor needed for festival staffing. As a Sponsor, you will be acknowledged by name on our festival banner. To make an online donation, visit our website at www.stgeorgeclifton.org and go to the Greek Festival page. Thank you for contributing to the success of our Festival!

Caretaker Needed for St. George:
After 30+ years of dedicated service, Effie and Vasili Triantafillou have informed the Parish Council that they are retiring from their duties this coming June. They have been such an integral part of our St. George family for decades and will be truly missed. We are grateful for their commitment and love for our Parish over these many years. The Parish Council has initiated a search for their successors. A job description is available at the Church office. The ideal candidate will live on site in the apartment behind the gymnasium. Please call 973-779-2626 with any suggestions or inquiries.
Sponsor A Day Program:
One way to help the church is through our “Sponsor A Day” program. We encourage our parishioners to select a day that has special meaning to them like a birthday, feast day, anniversary or a memorial and make a suggested donation of $250. We would like to thank the Daughters of Penelope for sponsoring April 23rd, the Feast Day of our patron Saint George the Great Martyr. For more information about the program, please speak to one of our Parish Council members, Ministry Leaders or call the church office.
