The St. Athanasios Chapel name was chosen by the late Chrisanthy Catranis. Saint Athanasios was a very special saint in her life. The chapel was built in the traditional Greek island Byzantine style by the Catranis family for the visitors and residents of Gulf Shores, Alabama, to worship on Sundays. It is the only Orthodox Church in the immediate area which includes the vacation resorts of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, and Foley, Alabama. The chapel and living quarters are separated by a beautiful courtyard area. The church seats 44 people and was designed by Pete J. Vallas, AIA.
