Welcome to the Parish!

Holy Assumption Orthodox Church is a parish of the Diocese of Chicago and the Midwest, of the Orthodox Church in America. We are in Communion with the universal Eastern Orthodox Christian Church; which abides by the teachings and traditions handed down from Christ through the Apostles, Holy Fathers, Ecumenical Councils, the Saints and the Hierarchy to this day since 33 AD without change or reform.

"The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It is Orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman. It isn't non-denominational; it is pre-denominational. It has believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for the Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost 2000 years ago." Steven Robinson

Celebrating 125 years of Orthodox witness on the North Coast

On Saturday September 23, 2023, Holy Assumption Orthodox Church observed 125 years of witnessing to the Apostolic Faith in Marblehead with a magnificent Hierarchical Divine Liturgy, celebrated by His Eminence Archbishop Daniel of Chicago and the Diocese of the Midwest. 

We thank everyone who helped to prepare for and participated in this momentous occasion!

About 90 parishioners, visiting clergy, and friends attended the morning service, followed by a festive banquet attended by approximately 115. 

Vespers were held the evening before, followed by an informal meal.  Matushka Michelle Tomas directed the choir for the services.

Most parishioners and visitors met His Eminence Archbishop Daniel for the first time during his first visit to Holy Assumption.  Many visitors also met for the first time Rev. Fr. Peter Tomas, pastor at Holy Assumption since May 1, 2023.

Visiting priests who celebrated with His Eminence were Very Rev. Fr. John Adamcio, Very Rev. Fr. Emilian Hutnyan, and Rev. Jan Cizmar.  Very Rev. Fr. Basil Stoyka also attended the Liturgy.  Serving during the Liturgy were one visiting deacon and four visiting sub-deacons.

The Honorable Jacqueline Bird, Mayor of Marblehead, presented a proclamation in honor of the Holy Assumption’s 125th anniversary, and Rev. Fr. Joe Repko, priest at Saint Mary Byzantine Catholic Church in Marblehead, presented Father Peter with an icon of the Dormition of the Holy Theotokos.  Parish Council President Ron Royhab served as master of ceremonies.
