OUR MISSION STATEMENT

However, this faith is deeply fulfilling and profoundly appropriate for the modern person. This faith will be shared with the entire community of central and southern Indiana by the fullness of our Church’s liturgical services and its spirituality. This will be accomplished through community outreach offering religious education, classes on theology, spirituality, scripture studies, fundraising, Byzantine counseling with a focus on Scriptural healing of mind, body and soul.
MISSION GOALS: To upgrade/replace our current church and rectory, expand our social hall, offer our ethnic foods.
OUR PARISH PRAYER:
Oh God the benefactor of our souls, Grant that by the prayers of St. Athanasius our parish patron,
We may be blessed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Grant that our community would grow in Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Piety, Knowledge and Fear of the Lord. Grant that our community would grow in Charity, Faith, Prudence, Hope, Justice and Temperance.
Oh Confessor and Bishop Athanasius, you said, “God became man so that man could become like God.” Pray for us that we would grow in Spirit.
Through the prayers of the Most Holy Theotokos and all the saints, now and forever. Amen.
