OUR HISTORY

The Orthodox Christian Church is based in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, who has come in to the world as a Man for our salvation. This is the foundational belief of every true Christian. “Orthodox” means right teaching or right worship, and we understand our Orthodox Christian faith to be the full and right revelation of God’s desire for us to believe in Him, know Him, abide in Him and receive eternal life from Him. The theology of the Orthodox Church is fully described in the Holy Gospel of John.

We are a community of Christians who are members of the Antiochian Orthodox Church, one of many autocephalous local churches that was established by Apostles Paul and Barnabas in A.D. 42 with St. Peter serving for the next eight years as its first leader. 

WHO ARE WE

St. Mary of Egypt Orthodox Church was established in 2007 by the Very Rev. Fr. Athanasius Wilson and several faithful Orthodox Christians as a mission of St. George Orthodox Church, Fishers. We have since multiplied into a wonderfully diverse parish who break bread together every Sunday.

We invite you to visit and worship with us. You will find a loving Orthodox Christian community made up of many people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

The Rev. Fr. Peter Cox, Rector

Fr. Peter is a native of Fort Worth, Texas. He was raised in the Episcopal Church and became Orthodox in 1992 when his home parish was received into the Western Rite Vicariate of the Antiochian Archdiocese as what is now St. Peter, Fort Worth. He had previously graduated that year from Dallas Baptist University with a BAAS in Computer Systems Management. He received his MDiv from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, Massachusetts, in 2000 and continued to work in information technology and management, earning the CISSP certification in 2012. He was ordained to the diaconate in August, 2018, and to the priesthood in June, 2019, before being assigned as rector of St. Thomas, Sioux City, Iowa, in August, 2019. He was assigned to St. Mary of Egypt as rector as of 2024-01-01.

The Very Rev. Fr. Athanasius Wilson, Rector Emeritus

Fr. Athanasius is a native of Indianapolis, born in the Fountain Square neighborhood in 1932. He married the love of his life, Loretta Francis, in 1951. He attended and served at Garfield Christian Church before being called to the ministry in 1960, attending Manhattan Christian College in Manhattan, Kansas. After graduating, he served several congregations in central and southern Indiana. While attending Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis during this time, he became thirsty for a deeper, more historical expression of Christianity and found it in the Orthodox Church, where he was received via Chrismation in 1973 at Christ the Savior Orthodox Church in Indianapolis. He was ordained to the holy diaconate by the hand of Metropolitan PHILIP (Saliba) of blessed memory in 1985 at St George Orthodox Church in Indianapolis, then to the holy priesthood by the hand of Bishop ANTOUN (Khoury) on 1993-04-03, and assigned to All Saints Orthodox Church in Bloomington, Indiana, where he served until 2006. He and Khouria Loretta founded St. Mary of Egypt Orthodox Church in Greenwood with 4 others in April, 2007, after he retired from All Saints. His beloved Loretta passed from this life in August 2016, and he continued to serve as the parish priest at St Mary of Egypt. He retired from active ministry in July, 2020, and continues to serve as rector emeritus.
