About Our Parish
The history of Dover's Greek community and its religious heritage started around the turn of the 20th century when Hellenes, mostly young men, left their villages in Greece to come to America, the land of opportunity and freedom. What they found was hard work and loneliness. Like other immigrants, they lived close to each other and shared their language, their Greek background, their happy times and their sadness.
