Our Church


The Church of Christ is a community.  The Church is a body with many parts or members.  The Church is a body which was established and as your clergy, we are ready and willing, with the sole guidance of Christ, to work with you, talk to you and advise you, in matters concerning your spiritual life.

We are always here for you!

Service Hours


STEWARDSHIP NOTE: November has been designated as “Stewardship Month” in our parish. You will be receiving your 2017 Stewardship materials by mail during the first part of November. Please begin to pray about your yearly commitment of support and discuss year 2017 pledge with your family. Remember, we need everyone to raise their pledge by at least 10 percent to meet our budget.

The quarterly statements have been mailed, please review them and if you have any questions, please call the church office. Also, as we are coming to a close for this year, please make sure your 2016 pledge is current or paid in full. Your support and cooperation in this matter is always deeply appreciated.

To date, $371,018 has been pledged, of which over $74,000 still needs to be paid. As you can see, this sum is far short of our goal of $500,000. Please continue to generously support our parish through the Stewardship Program.

CHOIR MEMBERS NEEDED “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” (Colossians 3:16). Won’t you consider becoming part of our Cathedral choir and encourage your children to join as well. Once again we stress that our Cathedral choir is looking for more people to add their voices to our group. Also, we are in need of an assistant Choir director. If anyone is interested in this position or joining the choir, please see Roberta Korfias.


HARVEST FOR THE HUNGRY: Once again our parish is reaching out to assist those less fortunate during the holiday season by providing meals for Thanksgiving. Won’t you step up and offer your help? Donations of turkeys and monetary gifts are being accepted through November 13th. If you would like to help serve dinner on Thanksgiving Day, please contact Bill Logothetis at 219-743-7117, before November 13th. For additional information, contact Eva Kostides at 219-662-8370.

THE HELPING HAND FUND:  Your assistance is needed!  Donations for the Helping Hand Fund are always welcome as the need for those less fortunate continues throughout the year.  Please support this ministry of our parish as we serve those in need in Christ’s Name.  For specific details, see Fr. Ted.

2017 FESTIVAL CHAIRPERSONS NEEDED: The Parish Council is seeking parishioners willing to chair the 2017 Greek Festival. We need some new blood to step up and help with this event, which is the second largest fund raiser for our Cathedral. Anyone interested, please contact Elias Ploutis or call the church office.

Attention Parishioners:  Madison Street Construction  In April, the Town of Merrillville began the road reconstruction project for Madison Street.  This project, which has been delayed for a year now, will take approximately a year and a half to complete.  The work being done on Madison Street will affect normal traffic patterns, as well as the entrance and exiting from our Cathedral parking lots.  Please be careful and aware of the construction so that you may travel safely to and from church.  Check the weekly bulletin for updates.
