August Feasts and Fasts


The Dormition fast begins on Wednesday, August 1 and lasts through Tuesday, August 14th, the eve of the great feast of the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos. The feast of the Dormition will be celebrated with Great Vespers on Tuesday, Aug 14, at 6 PM, and the Divine Liturgy on Wednesday morning, Aug 15 at 10 AM.

We will celebrate the great feast of the Transfiguration of our Savior Jesus Christ on Sunday, August 5th (transferred from the 6th), with the blessing of the grapes after the Divine Liturgy. Everyone is welcome to bring a basket of grapes (or similar first fruits)!

The fast begins with the Commemoration of the Procession of the Cross, celebrated with Great Vespers on Tuesday, July 31st, at 6:00pm.

On Wednesdays during the fast, August 1 and 8, we will serve the Paraklesis to the Theotokos.
