The Transfiguration of Our Lord      August 6-13
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 Falling Asleep of the
Most-Holy Theotokos


The Dormition, or falling asleep of the Theotokos, is one of the great Feasts of the Orthodox Church. It proclaims that the Theotokos has been taken by God into the heavenly kingdom of Jesus Christ, in complete fullness of her spiritual and bodily existence.

The Dormition is celebrated on August 15, and is preceded by fourteen days of strict fasting, only with the exception of the Holy Transfiguration of Christ, which is August 6. The falling asleep of the Virgin Mary is the commemoration of the death, resurrection and glorification of the Most-Holy Mother of Jesus Christ.
