Most Holy Theotokos, save us...
About us...
 

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, the Theotokos, August 15/28, 1981.

Then and thereafter, the clergy and laity of the parish 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 of America), 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.
