The congregation of the Church of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary gathered shortly before 8 a.m. outside the church on De L’Epée Ave. and St. Roch St.

The fire broke out after evening prayers on Monday and caused significant damage to the building, but it is salvageable.

People have spent the past three days scrubbing and cleaning as best they could, and were able to get a portion of the Koimisis Tis Theotokou church called The Tomb of the Virgin Mary ready for Friday prayers.

Several dozen devoted Greek Orthodox Catholics assembled outside the building for the morning service.
