Falling in Love With the Orthodox Church
Restoration of the Orthodox Way of Life by Blessed Andrei of Novo Diveyevo
Orthodox Christian church of the Dormition of the Theotokos in Concord
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.|
At the time the first
Liturgy was celebrated, the church was a small temple occupying a room
just 12 x 15 foot on the first floor of the priest's house. Since then,
the parish has grown and after much struggle and prayer, a building was
purchased in June of 1993.
Currently, the Dormition of the
Theotokos parish is comprised of families from Greek, Russian,
and English descent, with many converts to the Orthodox
The full yearly cycle of Orthodox Christian services are celebrated according to the Traditional Ecclesiastical calendar.
Dormition of the Theotokos Orthodox Church is under the Omorphorion of
His Grace, Bishop Demetrius of Boston and New England. Bishop Demetrius
is a member bishop of the Eparchial Synod of the Church of the Genuine
Orthodox Christians of America (GOC), an autonomous eparchy of the Church of
the Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece.
Vistors are always welcome to our services and a community meal is held each Sunday immediately following the Divine Liturgy.
Glory be to God for all things!

"In giving birth thou didst preserve thy virginity; in thy dormition thou didst not forsake the world, O Theotokos;
Thou wast translated unto life,
since thou art the Mother of life;
and by thine intercessions,
dost thou redeem our souls from death."
