On Saturday evenings, beginning February 11th, we will be reading together through the book Bread & Water, Wine & Oil: An Orthodox Christian Experience of God. This study is intended to accompany our Orthodoxy 101 class from the Autumn. The format of the class will be question/answer and discussion, and is open to everyone.
The South Hampton Roads chapter of Orthodox Christian Fellowship (OCF) is about to kick of another year together. If you are a college student in the area who is Orthodox or interested in learning more about the Orthodox Church join us! We gather every week. Sometimes for lively and challenging conversation, sometimes for fun, and sometimes for philanthropy. We kick off the new school year with a house party at Fr. John’s place on Tuesday, September 6, at 6:30. Come eat, play games and connect with some great people. If you are interested you can contact Fr. John Cox, any of the local Orthodox churches, or reach out through our Facebook page. We are excited about OCF this coming year and we want you to be a part of it!
On 17 August 2016, Dormition of the Theotokos Orthodox Church officially purchased the building and property at 736 Sheppard Avenue in Norfolk. We are very excited for this transition into a larger space and excited that we will have more room to welcome new people into our community.
We received our Certificate of Occupancy on March 18th.
Our first service in the new building is an Akathist to the Theotokos on April 1st at 10:00 AM, followed by blessing the new building. We invite you to join us and see for yourself what the Orthodox Church is all about!
