The Venue of Merging Arts (V.O.M.A) is a non-profit/social benefit arts organization located in the National Historic Cambria City section of Johnstown housed in one of the recently closed churches.
Constructed in 1911 as St. Mary’s Syrian Orthodox Church it served the Lebanese Christian community until 1971 when a new congregation that split off from St. Petka’s Serbian Orthodox Church in Woodvale acquired it. In 1977 the church was renamed St. George’s Serbian Orthodox Church.
No longer home to an active parish, the church building was acquired in 2008 by former Cambria City residents and is being re-purposed into a unique community arts center known as V.O.M.A.
