Spread the Gospel to all nations…

without spreading yourself so thin


“I work full-time and have a young child. When it was time to prepare my ordination packet, Maria simplified the process for us. She devoted herself to helping us get everything we needed to submit my application without having to take too much time away from my family.”

 ~Jordan Zanetis, Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology Class of 2013

“When I first met Maria, she was a neophyte in the Orthodox Church. She consistently amazed me with her truly Orthodox mindset which constantly made me re-immerse myself in the Orthodox Church. As an Orthodox priest in a parish which did not have a secretarial staff, I consistently relied on Maria to assist me secretarially in every realm of the Church.” 

~Fr. Jim Karagas, Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America

“God bless Maria Powell. Of all the people, Maria has been so instrumental and passionate in St. Irene Orthodox Mission Centre Kenya. She is kind and loving. She has ensured we have fulfilled our dream by creating a website and a blog for our mission. I recommend her to anyone who would like her help. She is absolutely perfect. Live many years, Maria Powell. We love you.”

~Fr. Constantinos Eliud Muthiru, St. Irene Orthodox Mission Center, South Kinangpop, Kenya

“I have known Maria Powell for several years now. The services that she has rendered in transcribing my own homilies have been excellent, accurate, and timely. I strongly recommend her transcription service to any cleric who wishes to have a high-quality and accurate record of his homilies to further his ministry and to build the kingdom.”
 ~The Reverend Dr. Benedict Simpson, Chaplain of Ascension Monastery, Resaca, GA

“I have had quite a few different people do transcriptions. Several of them have done a very good job. And so far, Maria at Dormition Text does the best work of anyone.  Maria makes me feel as if I have my own personal assistant. She is much more than a transcriptionist or typist. She also updates my web pages, edits audio files, and even researches footnotes. And the quality of her work is outstanding! In the past, I had transcriptionists who made so many errors, that I had to spend hours editing their work. But with Maria, I can trust her to transcribe my homilies accurately, upload them to my website, and even format the text in a pleasing and professional way. She really succeeds in making my life easier, so that I can focus on other important church work. If you need an affordable personal assistant, then I recommend Maria Powell at Dormition Text Services. I give her five stars!”

~ Fr. Joseph Gleason, Christ the King Orthodox Church (Antiochian, Western Rite Vicariate)
