Summer 2017 Church Schedule

Due to classes not being in session, St. Ephraim’s chapel is unable to have Sunday services on campus during Summer 2017. Therefore, we will attempt to maintain our current start time (10:00 AM) and routine as much possible by having services in the homes of chapel faithful during the summer months. Our Summer 2017 Divine Liturgy schedule is listed below:

May 14, 2017: Fr. Stephen scheduled to serve

June 11, 2017: Fr. Stephen scheduled to serve

July 23, 2017: Fr. Benjamin scheduled to serve

August 6, 2017: Fr. Stephen scheduled to serve

For location details, please email Father Stephen at frstephenfrase@yahoo.com. We hope to see you this summer!

Divine Liturgies and Typika Services will resume at Galbreath Chapel in late August 2017. A schedule will be provided later in the summer.

Celebrate the Gift of Life this January!

January 15, 2017

In honor of Sanctity of Human Life Sunday (today, January 15, 2017), the St. Ephraim community is supporting the Athens Pregnancy Resource Center, a locally organized and funded ministry that offers life-affirming education to women and families, in its annual baby bottle campaign. Today and next Sunday, baby bottles are distributed at church for parishioners to take home, fill with checks, cash, and/or coins, and returned to the church on January 29, 2017 for donation to the PRC.

Please consider supporting this Christ-centered local fundraiser as we celebrate the gift of life!
