January 19th is “Sanctity of Life Sunday”

Christ is born, glorify Him!

Another year has come to commemorate the Roe v Wade anniversary.  We will not cease to pray and be a voice for the innocent unborn.

January 19, 2020, will be observed as “Sanctity of Life Sunday” in parishes of the Orthodox Church in America. Special liturgical petitions and prayers are available on the Prayers for Orthodox Christians page and in PDF format. A message from His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon for Sanctity of Life Sunday will be available early next week for download.
The day serves as a prelude to the annual March for Life marking the 48th Anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the United States, in the US Capital on Friday, January 24. As in past years, Orthodox Christians from across the country will gather to proclaim the sanctity of God’s precious gift of life and to remember the millions of victims abortion has claimed over the past four decades.
His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon will lead a delegation of bishops, clergy, monastics, seminarians and faithful from the Orthodox Church in America as they join other Orthodox Christian bishops, clergy, and faithful participating in the annual March for Life.
Events on Friday, January 24 will begin with the Divine Liturgy at 8:30 am at Saint Nicholas Cathedral celebrated by His Grace Bishop Daniel of Santa Rosa. Following the celebration of the Divine Liturgy marchers will make their way to the National Mall for the pre-March rally and March. The pre-March rally will begin at noon at 12th St. on the National Mall. Among those scheduled to address the rally will be His Grace Bishop Apostolos of Medeia, of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, who will offer a prayer on behalf of the Assembly of Bishops.  At the conclusion of the rally, Metropolitan Tikhon will preside at a prayer service for those who have fallen victim to abortion.

Moleben, Lunch and a Movie!

The Moleben (Prayer) for Life with the Akathist to the Mother of God, will be served by Fr. Alexis Miller   

Saturday, November 2, 2019 at 11 am

in front of Planned Parenthood  

8590 Georgetown Road Indianapolis

Followed by a Free Lunch and the movie “Unplanned” 

 at Joy of All Who Sorrow Orthodox Church

1516 N Delaware St., Indianapolis at 12:30 pm

Unplanned is the inspiring true story of one woman’s journey of transformation. All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the nation, she believed in a woman’s right to choose.  Until the day she saw something that changed everything. Rated PG13 by the filmmakers who produced “God’s Not Dead”, however, rated R by the MPAA.

Fr. Alexis Miller will facilitate the discussion after the movie.  We hope you could join us in this endeavor for Life to the glory of God.  Please bring diapers for the Birthline Ministry to help needy families.

This event is sponsored by the Presbyters Council of Central Indiana.  


We will have the Moleben for Life on Wednesday, September 25th at 6 pm at St. John the Forerunner Orthodox Church located at 1421 S Blaine Ave., Indianapolis 46221.  It will be served by Fr. Zachariah.  Please come and join us in prayer!  Thanks to Blandina for coordinating this moleben.  Blessings to all!

From the Annual Dormition Prayer Vigil to End Abortion

O most merciful, all gracious and compassionate Lord Jesus Christ our Savior, Son of God: we entreat Thee, most gracious Master: look with compassion upon Thy children who have been condemned to death by the unjust judgment of men. And as Thou hast promised to bestow the heavenly kingdom on those born of water and the Spirit, and those who, in blamelessness of life, have been translated unto Thee; and Who said, “Suffer the little children to come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven”—we humbly pray, according to Thy unfailing promise: Grant the inheritance of Thy kingdom to the multitude of spotless infants who have been cruelly murdered in the abortuaries of this land; for Thou art the resurrection and the life and the repose of all Thy servants and of these innocents, O Christ our God.

We beseech Thee, turn the hearts of those who seek to destroy Thy little ones. Pour forth Thy healing grace upon them, that they may be convicted in their hearts and turn from their evil ways. Remember all of them that kill our children as on the altars of Moloch, and render not unto them according to their deeds, but according to Thy great mercy, and convert them: the unbelieving to true faith and piety, and the believing that they may turn from evil and do good.

O Holy Master, Almighty Father and pre-eternal God, Who alone made and directs all things; Who rises up quickly against the evil of the impious ones; Who, by providence, teaches Thy people preservation of justice and the obliteration of evil on earth; Who condescends to raise up warriors for the protection of the people of God: we entreat Thee with compunction, that as Thou didst give David power to defeat Goliath, and as Thou didst condescend through Judas Maccabeus, to seize victory from the arrogant pagans who would not call on Thy Name; so too, grant protection to us, Thy servants against the enemies rising against us as we go forth to do spiritual battle against the evil one and those who do his will rather than Thine.

For Thou art a merciful God, and lovest mankind, and unto Thee do we ascribe glory, to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
