Assumption Raises Dome and Cross on New Church
On Thursday, September 19, 2002, Assumption of the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church raised the domes and cross atop its new church. The Assumption Church was devastated by fire three years ago, at its location on Butterfield Street in Lowell, MA. The new church is at 1160 Mammoth Road in Dracut Massachusetts.
Doors will open in November 2002. For more information, visit the church webpage at paulinema.tripod.com/assumption
