Events Calendar

  • The month of August has 3 holy days: Aug 6 – The Transfiguration of Our Lord (solemn holy day with the blessing of 1st fruits); Aug 15 – Dormition of the Theotokos (holy day of obligation with the blessing of flowers); and Aug. 29 Beheading of John the Baptist (simple holy day.)
  • The Dormition Fast is from Thursday, August 1 through Wednesday, August 14. The traditional rule is a strict abstinence with usual mitigations (wine & oil) for Saturday & Sunday and the feast of the Transfiguration (August 6.) The Ruthenian Metropolia has identified this period as a penitential season (Canon 880, § 2). This fast may be observed voluntarily but it is highly recommended for your spiritual & physical well-being.
  • The Eparchy of Parma is holding a General Assembly on Friday evening through Sunday morning September 20-22. There is a frequently asked questions brochure and a registration form with itinerary available in the hall. More information will follow here at the parish and publicized in The Horizons.
  • The next Healing Service is Wednesday, August 21. Note that this is the 3rd Wednesday of the month. The Dormition vigil Divine Liturgy is scheduled for the 2nd Wednesday this month.

Please remember in your prayers

Fr. Bryan Eyman (our new pastor), Fr. Christiaan Kappes, the men and women in our armed forces, Arlene Boesen, Kevin Zahn, our parishioners, family members, friends and acquaintances who are ill or infirmed. God grant your servants peace, health and happiness for many years!


Welcome to our new pastor, Very Rev. Dr. Bryan Eyman who has moved from St. Mary’s parish in Marblehead, OH to Indianapolis this past week. On Friday, August 2 Fr. Thomas Loya installed Fr. Bryan Eyman as pastor of St. Athanasius Church and the protopresbyter for the Midwest region.

 Thank you

Thanks to those who helped with rectory renovations (framing in a new closet, moving furnishings, boxing and unboxing books, etc.) and/or attended bake days and the fund-raising markets in the last week. The customers at the markets compliment the bakers and salespeople for providing the foods that remind them of their loved ones and their past. Without you we couldn’t have continued meeting their expectations and providing the parish with much needed funds. God grant you many years.
