Did you know that the local St. George's Episcopal Church began as a parochial mission way back in mid-1958? The mission purchased land where the church now stands and opened its chapel-size sanctuary in 1962. Its first vicar was the Rev. Oswald Jefferson who accepted a call to Claremont after one year of service and was replaced by the Rev. Joseph Redinger, who became a prominent figure. The church's first headquarters office temporarily opened in early 1960 before a permanent church site was found.
