St. George Leader To Use St. George Knight as Symbol

In honor of St. George, the patron saint of England, the St. George Leader has adopted as its symbol a St. George knight who carries a shield bearing the St. George Cross.

When East Baton Rouge Parish was settled, the first Catholic parish was St. Joseph Catholic Church in downtown Baton Rouge.  The second Catholic parish, which encompassed the remainder of East Baton Rouge Parish, was St. George.

So the first name for the southeast part of East Baton Rouge Parish was indeed St. George, which is why the founders of the City of St. George chose the name St. George.

The St. George Leader is owned by Community Press, LLC.

Key personnel for the newspaper are Woody Jenkins, editor,  and Jolice Provost, business manager.
