Building Fund

Our parish is working hard to establish a permanent home! This home is not an opportunity to pat ourselves on the back for having a bigger, nicer facility. It is an integral part of our vision as a community. What is that vision? To be a living and loving witness to the Orthodox faith in Hampton Roads, and to invite others into our community to experience that love and life themselves. We have been doing this in our current rented space but we need more room to continue! You can help us continue to grow in three specific ways:

  1. Add Dormition Orthodox Church to your daily prayers.
  2. Make a gift or a forgivable loan to the parish. If you want to know how a friendly loan works, please contact Fr. John. We need $300,000 to complete the purchase of the property and prepare the site for the first phase of our building project, which will include the parking lot and multi-purpose building.
  3. Tell a friend about us. Please share what we are doing with anyone who is interested in helping us reach our goal or who might need a good church home. Our doors are open to as many as will fit inside!

Leave us a note and tell us whether your donation is for the building fund or for operating expenses. Please note that while all donations are tax deductible, building fund donations are not the same thing as a friendly loan.

NOTE: A friendly loan is a financial agreement between associates. In our case, it is an agreement between the Diocese of the South (OCA) and individuals affiliated with or interested in the Church. The terms are negotiable.
