Welcome to St. George Parish
Welcome to St. George Catholic Parish in beautifully scenic Hermann, Missouri. We are at the very foothills of the Ozark Mountain Range, believed by scholarly sources to be the oldest mountain range in North America. We also reside on the banks of the muddy Missouri River, “Ole Man River” of Samuel Clemens fame. You can read our history below to get a glimpse of our heritage, about which you can tell we are very proud. But the most important part of St. George Parish and Hermann, Missouri, in the past and now, is the people. Even though there is a lot of tourism in Hermann now, it’s history has been river commerce, cattle farming, and row-crop farming. That is really what is in the blood of the “old timers” around here, right along with their German Catholic heritage. Come visit us! And even better….come worship with us and celebrate Holy Eucharist with us. We would love to have you join us!

Advent Mission at St. George Parish
St. George Parish Advent Mission
December 4th, 5th and 6th at 7pm
What Is A Mission?
Each evening there will be a special parish Mass and homily designated to increase our spirituality. A social will follow in the church basement to enhance our feeling of parish community. The mission priest will be available for informal chats and questions and answers. So that all may attend, most parish functions will be canceled during Mission week.
The presenter will be Father Bill Rhinehart, C. M. a priest of the Vincentian Congregation who is stationed in Liberty, Missouri, and travels all over the United States to provide such mini-retreats to Parishes centering on themes such as Holy Eucharist and service towards others. Fr. Rhinehart will not only give talks during weekend Masses and the evenings of December 4th, 5th and 6th but also visit nursing homes, and some homebound. His talks will be engaging and affirming to all ages. Come and join us and bring a neighbor. All are welcome!
