Holy Dormition Church
In 1905 Archbishop Tikhon came to Calhan, turned the dirt, and blessed the ground that would become St Mary’s Holy Dormition Orthodox Church. This beautiful little church on a high hill would come to represent a microcosm of Orthodoxy in this country, and a struggle to maintain its identity in a land that often rejects what the faith has to oﬀer.
The parish of Holy Dormition and the Rocky Mountain Deanery has and will continue to endeavor to bring a wide variety of spiritual and educational events to the faithful. Holy Dormition will continue as it has in the past to be a witness for Orthodoxy in Eastern Colorado. Each of the varying ministries and organizations within the church have committed themselves to excellence in not only bringing the faith to those who are without a church, but also reaching out into the community with charitable works.
Today, the faithful of Holy Dormition are a constant witness of what Orthodoxy can be, not only in a small community, but in any community. The faithful know that God’s prayers and blessings on St Mary’s will continue to be able to make a signiﬁcant contribution to the health and welfare of its community, and at the same time fulﬁll the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in helping those who are in need of help while growing spiritually by this eﬀort.
