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.
The life of the Orthodox Church perpetuates and fulfills the ministry of Jesus Christ. The close association between Christ and His Church is reflected in the images from the Scriptures which declare that Christ is the Head and the Church is His Body, and that Christ is the Bridegroom and the Church is His bride.
