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.


Christ is Risen! May God bless you during this Bright Week.

We look forward to seeing you this Sunday, April 23, 2017 for our last Divine Liturgy of the Spring 2017 semester. Please join us at Galbreath Chapel (43 University Terrace, Athens, OH 45701) at 10:00 AM for Divine Liturgy, followed by coffee social!
