The dismissal is the concluding portion of the divine services where the presiding priest or bishop prounounces a final, formal blessing. Reader's services do not include the dismissal.

A typical example is as follows:

Priest:

Glory to Thee, O Christ our God and our hope, glore to Thee!

Congregation:

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
Lord, have mercy. (3x) Father, bless.

Priest:

May He who rose from the dead, Christ our true God, through the prayers of His most pure Mother; of the holy, glorious, and all-laudable apostles; of our father among the saints, John Chrysostom, Archbishop of Constantinople; of Saint (of the church); of Saint (of the day), whom we commemorate today; of the holy and righteous Ancestors of God, Joachim and Anna; and of all the saints: have mercy on us and save us, for He is good and loves mankind.
