The ceremony was followed by Vespers, with His Grace Bishop Anthony presiding. The 22,000 square foot building project began  in the fall of 2012; the architect patterned the design after Hagia Sophia, as well as churches in Palestine and Syria.

"We built for the ages," the Rev. Nabil L. Hanna said of the temple, which is crowned with a gold dome fifty feet above the sanctuary.

A reporter from the IndyStar, Ms. Cara Anthony, published the story and a photo gallery of the day.
