In Somerville, the Dormition of the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church proudly notes its immigrant history. Founded in 1916 (originally on Bow St.), the church was formed by Greek immigrants who came to work in Somerville's meatpacking plants. They settled in the Brickbottom area of Somerville (which was a close-knit neighborhood before being razed for City and factory use) and they worshipped at Dormition—all while making their way in a new land.
Today, the Church draws members from throughout Greater Boston. A very active, very Greek and very warm community, they are led by Rev. Fr. Panteleimon Klostri. The congregation pursues charitable work, offers numerous youth programs including Greek School and Church School and maintains an all-ages choir. In addition, a Golden Club brings together members over 50 to socialize and undertake charitable work, and a Health Committee organizes exercise classes and health talks. Their annual Greek Festival, held the second weekend of September, draws members and neighbors, as well as foodies looking to sample the homemade Greek treats like grilled kebabs, spanikopita (spinach pies) and sweet baklava.
The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America states that, "Orthodoxy believes that God has revealed Himself to us, most especially in the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom we know as the Son of God. This Revelation of God, His love, and His purpose, is constantly made manifest and contemporary in the life of the Church by the power of the Holy Spirit."
