NEW TO THE AREA AND ORTHODOX?
HELPFUL INFORMATION AND LINKS
If you are an Orthodox Christian family or person new to our area, welcome! Up until our parish was planted in 2009, Orthodox Christians used to have to drive two hours in order to attend Divine Liturgy. It was the largest metro area in the country without an Orthodox church. Now you have a home no matter what your Orthodox background is. We are under the omophorion of Metropolitan JOSEPH, Archbishop of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, and are in communion with all of the historic Patriarchates of Constantinople, Moscow, Romania, Serbia, etc. If you have any questions about us, call your home priest or spiritual father.
Also note that after a few years, our parish decided to purchase our temple on 3407 Bellemeade Avenue and repurpose it for Orthodox worship. It has an historic appearance reminiscent of churches such as Αγιοs Δεμητριοs in Thessaloniki and the Church of Saint Peter in Antioch, Syria (modern day Turkey). The stone used back in 1948 to build it is called "Saint Meinrad Stone" and was brought here from that town which is one hour east of Evansville. You will find that he acoustics in the church are optimal to say the least.
Next, most of our services are in English. However, we do pray the Lord's prayer in Greek, Romanian, Old Slavonic, Spanish, Georgian, and whatever other language is added unto us as we grow. Our people come from all over the country and the world. Come experience what heaven will be like where "every tribe and tongue" will ceaselessly praise God!
