Overview

Dedicated to the early Christian martyr, St. George of Lydda (England's patron saint, a Roman soldier and martyr more often associated with dragon-slaying), the Cathedral is a neo-Gothic edifice that resembles Oxford's New College. In this compound, the Turkish governor surrendered to British General Allenby in 1918. Within the walls are St George's College, a guest house, and the Episcopal bishop's residence. This is a very active congregation, much involved in the Palestinian independence movement, peace and social justice issues.
