UPCOMING PARISH ACTIVITIES
THE DORMITION TABLE
Our beloved Dormition Church nourishes those in need from around the Somerville area. The Dormition Table as we call it, is the fruit of many parishioners’ collective efforts to plan, organize and execute a decision to start our own soup kitchen. It is providing and serving freshly cooked meals twice a month, while we hope that we can serve more often.
We owe many thanks to those faithful Christians who contributed to our Table with their Time, Treasure and Talents. All of them have tried to fulfill Christ’s Will on earth. A Will which is summarized in these words of His: “For I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink…” (Mat. 25:35).

THE DORMITION OF VIRGIN MARY'S FESTAL HYMN (APOLYTIKION)
In birth, you preserved your virginity; in death, you did not abandon the world, O Theotokos. As mother of life, you departed to the source of life, delivering our souls from death by your intercessions.
