Kh. Loretta Memory Eternal



Loretta Wilson, beloved wife of Fr. Athanasius Wilson left this earth on August 25 at 3 o'clock May her memory be eternal.

A wake (prayer vigil) will be kept from 4-8 pm Monday, Aug. 29, at St. George Orthodox Christian Church (10748 E. 116th Street, Fishers), where family and friends may pay their respects and offer their condolences. The service of the Trisagion for the departed will begin at 7:30 p.m.

The funeral service will begin at 10:30 am Tuesday, August 30, at St. George Church. Interment will follow later in the day at All Saints Orthodox Christian Church (6004 S Fairfax Rd, Bloomington, IN).


 

Loretta was a faithful servant of God and partner with Fr. Athanasius in their ministry, and she will also be missed by the many who saw her as a second mother in the churches that she and Fr. Athanasius served.

They were faithful members of St. George Orthodox Church in Indianapolis from 1976 to 1994, of All Saints in Bloomington, IN from 1994 to 2006 and of St. Mary Church in Greenwood from 2007 to the present.

Loretta is particularly remembered as one who was "full of grace and truth," selfless in a way that did not come from this world.



THE DORMITION FAST

One of the most neglected fasts (feasts) by several of our Orthodox brethren and sisters is the Dormition (The repose of the Mother of God).  This fast dates are August the 1st through the 14th and it ends on the eve of the feast day, August 15th. Another feast day, the Transfiguration is celebrated on August the 6th.  Below you will find all of the information you need to understand the reason and meaning for the fast and how to observe it.
