Dormition of the Theotokos: Fast & Feast

The Dormition Fast begins August 1. The traditional rule for the fast is a strict abstinence from August 1 to 14, with the usual mitigations of wine and oil for Saturday and Sunday and the Feast of the Transfiguration (Aug. 6). It is, therefore, observed as the Great Fast. The observance of this fast is voluntary.

We will celebrate the Feast of the Dormition on Monday, August 14 with a vigil vespers at 5:30pm and divine liturgy at 6:30pm followed by a potluck feast. The Dormition of the Theotokos is a holy day of obligation.

 “Take heart! It is I! Do not be afraid.”  Our Lord came to his disciples walking on water, and he called Peter to do the same. In fear and faith, he answered Jesus’ call. Is he calling you or someone you know to follow him as a priest, deacon, monk, or nun? Answering with your own fear and faith may be a blessing to you and to our Church.
