Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
We are the community of Holy Dormition Orthodox Church. Our parish is located in the midst of the Roseland area of Santa Rosa, California. We maintain a life of prayer, holding services throughout the week, including nightly Compline. Every Sunday and on numerous feast days we celebrate the Divine Liturgy (the Eucharist), almost always preceded the evening before by the Vigil service. Please feel free to contact us at any time with questions or if you would like to visit.
Through our prayers and our struggle to keep our faith active, we hope to provide an environment where God’s Presence may be felt by souls afflicted by the secular culture of our times. Our many outreach activities are meant to bring the Light of God to others and to attract and engage them in the richness of God’s Presence, to provide them with hospitality as Abraham provided the three angels under the Oak of Mamre.
Events & Announcements
Due to the current County Shelter in Place orders, we will temporarily not be offering public Church services.
Please continue to check back for further updates!
All are encouraged to unite spiritually in prayer from their homes, remembering especially those suffering, those at risk, and those who have departed this life due to the coronavirus.
Feel free to contact us, or talk to one of our faithful or one of the priests after the services. We love visitors!
If your need is of a pastoral nature, you can call the office or leave an email request to schedule an appointment to meet with a priest.
