WRO parish in Seymour, Indiana
« on: June 15, 2012, 01:00:33 PM »
There's apparently a parish called Holy Cross under ROCOR in Seymour, Indiana. I believe it's the closest WR parish to me in Louisville so I'd like to visit it sometime but I have found absolutely no information on the internet about it other than that it exists. No service times, no contact information, nada. Can anyone help me out?

This mission parish is quite small, with around 10-12 families. Sadly, they appear to have no web presence either. This is the only info I have been able to find:

Holy Cross Orthodox
West 4th Street
Seymour, Indiana 47274

The priest is Hieromonk Christopher Wendling-Way

I wasn't able to find any phone or contact info available.

I live in Indiana, and checked even the local Seymour church directories... this church didn't even make most of their radar screens.

All I can suggest is you contact ROCOR and/or their WRV. Hopefully, someone else on this forum may attend their or be able to provide more info.

That's interesting. I know no more than what thetraditionalfrog found out, other than it sounds nice and cozy :) You should contact them.

The only thing I could find was a picture of the priest.

Well thanks for trying. I guess I'll contact ROCOR.

Try contacting Fr Anthony Bondi, the Pastoral Vicar of the ROCOR Western Rite Vicariate using the following email rocorwr@optonline.net

Hopefully he will be able to help.

I've been in contact with Fr. Anthony. He gave me contact info for Fr. Wolfgang, from whom I have yet to hear back.
