The Transfiguration of Our Lord
His face shone like the sun, and His garments became white as snow. A bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him". When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces with awe. But Jesus came and touched them saying, "rise, and have no fear". (Matthew 17)

The Nativity of the Most-Holy Theotokos
Great Vespers with Litya:   Monday Sept 7th - 6:45 pm

The Nativity of the Most-Holy Theotokos is one of the Great Feasts of the Orthodox Church. It is celebrated on the 8th of September.

The Holy Virgin Mary was born to elderly and previously barren parents, Joachim and Anna, in answer to their prayers.

Divine Liturgy is served on the day on the feast. The Epistle reading speaks of "Christ Jesus, who being in the form of God, and taking the form of a bondservant, comes in the likeness of men". In it the Lord says, "blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it". The Gospel reading includes the Theotokos saying: "My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour, for He has regarded the low estate of His handmaiden, for behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed."

Troparion: Thy Nativity, O Virgin, Has proclaimed joy to the whole universe! The Sun of Righteousness, Christ our God, Has shone from Thee, O Theotokos! By annulling the curse, He bestowed a blessing. By destroying death, He has granted us eternal life.
