Announcements

The Great Fast

Holy Week, April 18-23 is 1 week away.  Remember, in these last 2 weeks before the greatest feast of Pascha, to more fervently and frequently: Pray, Go to Church, Repent, Fast, Read spiritual books, and Give alms.

You’re invited!

As part of the Eparchy of Parma’s year-long marriage initiative, Bishop John and the docudrama team cordially invite you to attend a live, interactive marriage presentation. Come to St. Michael church, 557 W. 57th Ave., Merrillville, IN (about 2.5 hours north of St. Athanasius parish), on Sunday, May 1, at 2 p.m. and witness the matrimonial journey of Andrew and Kathryn. “’Till Death Unites Us Forever” is a live, interactive presentation for people of all ages. There will be something for everyone in this presentation, from happily married couples who practice their faith to those considering marriage in the near or even far future. The Byzantine Ritual of Marriage itself – its deep, encompassing wisdom and spiritual richness – will serve as the reservoir our of which the presentation will seek to address the questions, yearning, joys, doubts, hopes, hurts and disappointments that lie in the hearts of people today. The presentation affirms that sacramental marriage is truly an honorable and good thing, something worth the commitment and effort.

After the presentation, greet the actors and enjoy refreshments at the reception in the parish hall.
