On Sunday, May the 7th: Holy Fire at St. Mary of Egypt Orthodox Church in Greenwood, IN

On Sunday, May the 7th, the Holy Fire will be delivered to St. Mary of Egypt Orthodox Church in Greenwood just before 10:00 a.m.

We will receive the Holy Fire into the church reverently as we prepare for the Liturgy.

This year is the first "official" transportation to the American shores.

Through a grassroots network of pious Orthodox believers (clergy and laity), the reception and distribution of the Holy Fire is spreading across North America. 

We encourage you to bring something to keep this miraculous flame alive and protected, for transport to your home to be placed in your icon corner. That may involve some planning on your part, possibly using some type of lantern, or something to maintain and protect the flame until you can bring it home safely. We also have candles for sale.

Come ye, take light from the Light 
that is never overtaken by night.

Come and glorify Christ 
risen from the dead.
