The Dormition Fast (August 1-14) culminates in the Feast of the Falling-asleep (Lat., 'Dormition') of the Virgin Mary Theotokos ('Birthgiver-of-God') on August 15 (w/blessing of herbs and flowers). During the Fast we abstain from meats, dairy products, and alcoholic drinks, except on certain feast days: the Transfiguration of Christ (Aug. 6 w/blessing of fruit), the glorification of St. Herman of Alaska (Aug. 9), and St. Tikhon (Aug. 13). Toward the end of the month we commemorate the Beheading of St. John the Baptist on August 29.
If you are interested in the Orthodox Faith, we welcome you to come and meet with us and pick up many interesting and informative pamplets that are available for you! If you should have any questions please feel free to call me at the Church at (330) 372-3895.
