Sunday of Orthodoxy

Each year the Orthodox parishes in here in Coastal Virginia gather together on the first Sunday of Great Lent to commemorate the historical triumph of the icons in 843 and to witness to our shared faith and mutual affection. This year Dormition is please to host this gather for the first time. At 6:00 p.m. we will gather for a Vespers service with an icon procession. Following the service a Lenten potluck fellowship will be offered in the hall. We are honored to have iconographer Lydia Hull as our guest speaker this year. A collection will be taken up at the end of the service so that the clergy brotherhood can bring in outstanding speakers for this event every year. Please join us as we celebrate the triumph of icons and the faith of our Orthodox community in coastal Virginia.
