St. George church is a Catholic parish in the Diocese of Belleville. It was established at the turn of the century, 1894,
by immigrant Germans and now has about 500 families with a cultural and ethnic mixture
resulting partially from its nearness to Scott Air Force Base. We are located in
Clinton County Illinois about 25 miles Southeast of St Louis Mo just off Interstate 64.
