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 42 A.D. 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 Fr. Athanasius Wilson and several faithful Orthodox Christians as a mission of St. George Orthodox Church. 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.
Fr. Athanasius Wilson
Born in 1932 in Indianapolis, Indiana, Fr. Athanasius Wilson graduated from Christian Theological Seminary in 1969. After a long journey towards Orthodoxy, he was sealed with Chrismation in 1973 at Christ the Savior Orthodox Church in Indianapolis. In 1974, Fr. Athanasius was ordained into the sub-diaconate and in 1985 to diaconate by His Eminence Metropolitan Philip. Fr. Athanasius Wilson was ordained to the holy priesthood on April 4, 1993 by His Grace, Bishop Antoun.
He then went on to serve in Bloomington, Indiana as All Saints Orthodox Church's first permanent priest, becoming Archpriest on July 11th, 2004. After retiring from All Saints in 2006, Rev. Athanasius still had the desire to pastor God's people burning deep within his soul, and in 2007, he announced his intentions to establish a mission in Greenwood, IN, setting out with his late wife Kh. Loretta, and 4 pilgrims. Since then, St. Mary of Egypt has grown into a flourishing parish where Fr. Athanasius serves as priest.
