History of St. Stephen Church  

The first church was built in 1915 on Blackford St. across from Military Park in downtown Indianapolis. During WWII our congregation began to move to different parts of the city. In December of 1954 construction began at our present location at 14th and Medford. The church was completed in 1955. On October 14, 1962 our church was concecrated by Metropolitan Arch-Bishop Andrey. 

We celebrated our 100TH ANNIVERSARY with a GALA CELEBRATION on Saturday, September 12, 2015 at the Indiana History Center on the canal in downtown Indianapolis.  Metropolitan Joseph, Bishop Daniil, Fr. Dimitur and six other Orthodox priests celebrated with us.  The event was sold out. Our church was one of five original churches begun in the United States and Canda under the Bulgarian Diocese. 

The Bulgarian School Indy, founded by +Valentin Pentchev and Ralitsa Kolarova in 2019, meet weekly in our fellowship hall on Saturday mornings at 9:30 am. They have curriculum for grades K-5, religious class, cultural tradition and language classes, music, and more.  Additional information available at: ralis_k@yahoo.com
