About the Church

The Orthodox Christian Church of the Dormition of the Theotokos in Concord, NH celebrated its first Vigil and Divine Liturgy on the Feast of the Dormition of our Lady, August 15/28, 1981.
Then and thereafter, the clergy and laity of the parish have placed themselves under the mighty protection of the most holy Mother of God (in Greek Theotokos).

At the time the first Liturgy was celebrated, the church was a small temple occupying a room just 12 x 15 feet on the first floor of the priest's house. With the growth of the parish and after much struggle and prayer, the present building was purchased in June of 1993.

In 2012, the Dormition of the Theotokos Orthodox Church became a member of the Eparchial Synod of the Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians of America (GOC), which is an autonomous eparchy of the Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece, presided by His Beatitude, Kallinikos Archbishop of Athens.

The Dormition of the Theotokos parish is comprised of families from English, Greek, Russian, French, Italian, and German descent, with many converts to the Orthodox faith.

The full yearly cycle of Orthodox Christian services are celebrated according to the Traditional Ecclesiastical (Julian) calendar. The Divine Liturgy is celebrated each and every Sunday and on major feast days. Great Vespers is served on Saturday evenings and the evening before a great feast.

* Services are conducted primarily in English, though Greek and Russian are used by request.

Vistors are always welcome to our services and a community meal is held each Sunday and on feast days immediately following the Divine Liturgy. Should you wish to receive the Mystery of Holy Communion, please contact Father Andrew in advance.

Glory be to God for all things!

Most Holy Theotokos, save us...


"The Christian life is life in the Lord Jesus Christ. The believer puts on Christ and lives through Him. He who falls after Baptism loses this grace; when rising up from this fall and returning to the Lord, he has become worthy of it again, and this he does through Holy Communion. He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, dwelleth in Me, and I in him, says the Lord (Jn. 6:56). St. Theophan the Recluse The Path to Salvation"

We have  provided a broad selection of articles and resources to introduce you to the beauty and spirituality of the Orthodox Christian Church. Included in the Articles page are sections for the major festal periods celebrated throughout the year: Great Lent, Pascha (Easter), and the Dormition of the Theotokos.

The Mission of the Orthodox Church:

To proclaim and live the Orthodox Christian Faith in its fullness as faithful members of the Body of Christ in the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.

As the Orthodox Christian Church:

+ We are Catholic, but not Roman.

+ We are Apostolic, but not Protestant.

+ We are Orthodox, but not Jewish.

The Orthodox Church isn’t "non-denominational" – it is pre-denominational, existing 1,500 years before any denominations.

The Orthodox Church has believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for the Faith of the Apostles since the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost 2000 years ago.  We are the Church in the Bible and the Church that established the New Testament as Scripture.
