Worship Spaces: St. Antony Antiochian Orthodox Church

I ran across St. Antony Antiochian Orthodox Church one morning about a week ago on my morning bike ride. The small church is located at the corner of 6th and Columbia in Tulsa, just off the University of Tulsa campus. What caught my eye was the beautiful icon portraits of the Four Evangelists on the outside of the building.

St. Antony was founded in 1934 by members from St. George Church in Wichita. In 1976, the Old Cedar Club building was donated to the (up until then) itinerant congregation. It was subsequently remodeled, and the icons were added in the late nineties by Janet Jamie from Oklahoma City. Father George Eber (who is quite the prolific tweeter) has served the parish since 1981.

St. Antony supports the Righteous Joseph of Egypt Prison Ministry, a project of the Orthodox Christian Churches of Oklahoma administered by St. Antony. The church also runs the St. Euphrosynos Kitchen, providing a lunch to the community every Thursday.
