New page – Orthodox Churches in Indianapolis

Filed under: faith and religion,web authoring,what's new — Nick @ 2:54 am

IĀ  added a new page to this website: Orthodox Churches in Indianapolis. I used this page partly to learnĀ  how to create a custom map with google maps and embed it in a webpage. Initially I intended to make the page to HTML 4.01 strict standards. However, google supplies code to embed the page using the IFRAME element, which is deprecated for strict doctypes. (The embedded code also seems to throw some validation errors, but that’s a rant for another day). I played around for awhile trying to convert it to an OBJECT element, but that turned out to be more trouble than it was worth; moreover, OBJECT does not play very nice with Internet Explorer (or perhaps vice versa), so eventually I gave up and used a transitional doctype, thinking that usability might be more important than purity of code.


  1. There are two Bulgarian churches in Indianaplois? Both off of 16th street and they look to be about 13-13 miles apart. Are there that many Bulgarian-background families in Indianapolis? And, out of curiosity, are their services primarily in English or Slavonic?

  2. My first non-spam comment!

    St. Stephens is the “Bulgarian” Bulgarian Church (and apropos of nothing, I happen to play soccer with the priest of that parish). The Joy of All Who Sorrow is, as far as I know, formed from a group who converted into Orthodoxy and just happened to be receieved by the Bulgarian Orthodox Church.

  3. I wonder how many “convert” parishes the Bulgarian Orthodox Church has received? In my experience, the convert parishes seem to mostly wind up with the Antiochians- in fact, we’ve got a new Antiochian parish (Western Rite) north of Frederick. Of course, there are two Bulgarian churches near where our folks used to live, but one is Patriarchate and one is OCA- Bulgarian Episcopate.
