Important Announcements


We are cordially inviting you to join us with your children at our new children’s festival “Lily of the Valley” which will be held on Saturday, May 21st, 2022. In order to register, either call (317) 767-4401 or enter your information on our website form.


Additional notification of the Organization Committee:

In the past two to three weeks, the monastery has become an interesting target for a group of thieves who, according to police, come from La Port, Indiana. So far, thank God, they haven’t stolen anything.

As a precaution, we hired night police security paid for by the monastery. Also, Sister Paula from Arizona has hired a qualified person for the daily security of the monastery, which she pays in full, and we are extremely grateful to her for that.

In addition to physical security, we equip the monastery with other means of protection in order to identify criminals as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The local and district police as well as the whole district provide us with full support. We have informed the district police about our plans for the festival, and they will be on duty at the monastery gate from 9 am (an hour before the start of the service) to 10 am on Saturday. When the opportunity arises, the police will turn on the rotating lights for the children.

The festival is held according to the original plan, without changes, with the fact that we as parents have taken additional protection measures.

We are looking forward to a new meeting and see you soon, God willing.

  • Djurdjevak Fest

    In today's society, we celebrate many different groups of people, events... but the family does not seem to be recognized as an important part of our lives that needs to be celebrated. In 2016, with Bishop Longin’s blessing, sisters’ approval, and Fr. Radovan Jakovljevic’s spiritual guidance the very first Djurdjevak Fest was organized to celebrate the importance of Orthodox families.
