Pastoral Care

Introducing a New “Walk-In” Pastoral Care Ministry

Come for Holy Confession, Anointing with Holy Oil, or Holy Communion without an appointment.

On Wednesdays from 10:00 am – 11:00 am: only for our vulnerable parishioners, those who are sheltering at home for age or health concerns. No appointment necessary.

On Wednesday afternoons from 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm: open to all, no appointment necessary.

Please wear a mask and observe social distancing.

For a longer counseling session or if these times do not work for you, please call or email Father Andreas for an appointment.

At Dormition Greek Orthodox Church, Pastoral Care is provided by telephone, email, text, Facebook, and by personal visit upon request. Contact Father Andreas, 802.862.2155 or


Hospital/Nursing Home Visits:

It is the family’s responsibility to notify Father Andreas when a visit is necessary. You may schedule a visit for you or your family member by calling the Parish office. If it is a medical emergency and the office is closed, leave a message for Father and he will be paged, or call his cell phone.

Please note that due to HIPAA privacy rules, hospitals will no longer inform the church when a member is a patient unless specifically asked to by the patient. Due to legal obligations, Father Andreas is not at liberty to offer information regarding parishioners.
