Join us for Christian Day at the Ballpark!
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) The biggest event of the Asian Catholic Church this year, is taking place in Yogyakarta city, Indonesia, next week. The 7th Asian Youth Day (AYD7) is being hosted by the Archdiocese of Semarang, August 2-6, with over 2000 young people from 21 Asian countries rallying around the theme, “Joyful Asian Youth: Living the Gospel in Multicultural Asia!” The continent-level event has been held in various Asian cities since 1999 in intervals of 2, 3 and 5 years, with the last AYD in Daejeon Diocese in Korea in 2014, in which Pope Francis participated.
Organizers have divided the entire AYD into three events spread across 11 days from July 30 to August 9. On arrival, the participants will head to the 11 of Indonesia’s 37 dioceses who will be hosting them from July 30 to August 2 in what is called Days in the Dioceses (DID). All the participants will then converge in Yogyakarta from August 2 to 6 for the central event of the AYD7. The 5 days will include a variety of activities such as adoration, confession, Mass, reflections, testimonies, workshops, group sharing, country exhibits and cultural performances. After the main event, the Asian Youth Ministers will stay back for a meeting, August 6 to 9.Read More
