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!

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis marked World Food Day this week with a visit to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) where he called on world leaders and policymakers to work for a concrete, practical consensus to prevent the most tragic effects of climate change hitting the weakest and most defenseless.
“We need to change our lifestyles, the use of resources, production and consumption patterns,” the Pope said, and he decried what he described as the “negligence” that is damaging the “delicate balances of the ecosystems” and the “arrogance of manipulating and controlling” the planet.Read More

(Vatican Radio) Methodist and Catholic theologians are meeting just outside Rome this week, marking the 50th anniversary of the first ecumenical dialogue group following the Second Vatican Council. That first session of the Methodist-Roman Catholic International Commission was held in the hill town of Ariccia in October 1967.
Pope Francis met with members of the current Commission on Thursday, together with leaders of the World Methodist Council, saying that half a century of dialogue has set us free from estrangement and suspicion and helped us to recognize each other as brothers and sisters in Christ.Read More
