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!
