St. George’s Welcomes New Rector
On Thursday, October 14th, 2010 St. George’s Episcopal Church Hellertown will
have a “Celebration of New Ministry” with the institution of Father H. Jonathan
Mayo as rector. The congregation and local clergy will gather for a special service at
7:00 P.M. that will include Holy Eucharist and a visit from the Bishop of the Diocese of Bethlehem, The Rt. Rev. Paul V. Marshall.
Father Jonathan is a native of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area, and has returned to
Pennsylvania after a 30-year absence. He has served parishes in California,
Minnesota, and Wisconsin, before coming to St George’s on August 1. He had
previously served small churches, and therefore had a secular career in Information
Technology. He graduated from Wilkes College, Wilkes-Barre, in 1975, and St
Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary, Crestwood, NY, in 1980. He has
immediate family living in the Lehigh Valley, the Pocono region, and St Louis, MO.
In 2008, St. George’s celebrated 100 years of worship having been a part of the
Hellertown community since 1908. Regular services are held on Sundays at 9:30
A.M. and Church School is offered for children ages 3-13 years old.
