Both street and side entrances have large ornately carved doors that together form an arch that mimics the alcoves for the bells. Entering from the street through these doors and you’re immediately in the back of the church. There is an alternate entrance at the right of the church that has a garden area with long benches, statues and plaques. A beautiful large native rock is by the entrance and etched with the church name and a plaque detailing the mass schedule. Entry through the side leads you into a very large foyer. White walls highlight the dark beams that line the ceiling. The grand foyer has handouts, posters, pictures and a Saint George Catholic Church Coat of Arms plaque, among other items. An adoration area for Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus is off to the right by the two rows of chairs and next to the glass panels that show into the nave of the church. A collection box for the poor is immediately to the right of the adoration area. Two sets of double glass doors separate the foyer from the nave of the church. Entry from this area is into the right upper portion of the church.
There are two sections of pews divided by one main and two side aisles. The left side wall is lined with stained glass windows that are along the upper portion of the wall. Beautifully wooden carved Stations of the Cross are evenly distributed between the two walls and below the windows. A large white marble baptismal font is in the back of the church and opposite the altar along with the gift table. There are very ornate brass crosses that hold the holy water next to each door. The pews are made of dark wood and have crosses tastefully etched near the bottom half of each pew.
The grand altar beckons attention no matter which entrance you use. Since it is the Sixth Sunday of Easter, the white linens are utilized. The back altar walls looks to be from two to three stories tall. Made of wood and with seven sections, it has tall shelves that hold an array of lovely statues, including their Patron Saint George on the top right and Our Lady of Guadalupe. The tallest section is the center one with the tabernacle below and a huge sculpture that depicts the Holy Spirit above. Hanging above the altar and slightly in front of the table is a lovely large crucifix. The Pascal Candle is to the right of the altar table along with a presider’s chair and Sanctuary Lamp. A large statue of Joseph is to the right of the altar area along with the music area. The American and Utah State flag are immediately to the left of the altar and just behind the intricately carved marble podium or ambo.
Saint George Catholic Church is very warm and beautiful. I thank the Father Picos and ushers that greeted me and made me feel welcomed in their church. May God always shine upon you and your church. God loves each of us as if there were only one of us. – St. Augustine
