Rev. Fr. Jason Dickey, Presiding Priest
Phone: (307) 635-5929
Father Jason came to Cheyenne in September of 2012 from Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Merrillville Indiana in the Metropolis of Chicago.
The greatest thing on Father Jason’s heart and mind while preparing to serve the people of Saints Constantine and Helen, and the community of Cheyenne Wyoming has been that of our commandment as followers of Christ to “Go Forth” in order to spread the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28). A small part of this is because he sees the past several years as a time of constant transition, travel, and preparation. Along with his wife, and children, he has traveled back and forth from Hellenic College in Boston Massachusetts, to Milwaukee, back to Holy Cross, to the Metropolis of Chicago, and to Wyoming!
Father Jason considers it to be a rich blessing to now be assigned to the Metropolis of Denver in order to serve the people of Saints Constantine and Helen.
Before serving our community, he served our country with the U.S. Army. At seventeen, he left his native Boston area for Ft. Benning GA. He was trained as an Infantryman, and as a paratrooper. He was eventually assigned to a Special Forces Group where he trained and served in places such as Ft. Bragg NC, and Ft. McLellan AL. Before being honorably discharged in 2003, he served two tours in Afghanistan in 2002, and again in 2003.
These circumstances brought him home to the Orthodox Church. More importantly, they gave him a purpose for serving God. Father Jason was immediately asked to minister to his fellow veterans after returning home in 2003 at local veteran’s chapters in New England. He also began to serve in Veterans hospitals in the Boston area where he helped facilitate spiritual care and coping skills for veterans. Father Jason’s experiences have also included serving in youth ministry, young adult ministry, and adult education while at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Milwaukee, at Taxiarchae Greek Orthodox Church in Watertown Massachusetts, and in various locations throughout the Orthodox Church of Albania such as the Orthodox Home of Hope for children.
