The church is a part of Saimaa Orthodox Parish (Finnish Orthodox Church) and services are held in Finnish and Church Slavonic.
The Church of St. George was built in honor of God and to commemorate the late servant of God Yuri Injushin. It was consecrated by Archbishop Leo of Karelia and All Finland.
This temple was built to bring the joy, hope and beauty of encountering God to our fellow human beings, as well as strengthen the love between people.
We would like to thank the employees at Kenozersky National Park in the Arkhangelsk Oblast of the Russian Federation, who graciously provided us with information about the Chapel of the Procession of the Holy Spirit in the village of Glazovo on which the Church of St. George is modeled. The church was built by a group of expert artisans from Finland and Russia. The design and construction took a total of 500 days. It was designed by church architect Ivan Kanaev
