The Dormition Fasting Season
begins August 1 and ends with the Feast of Dormition on August 15 (there will be a 9a Divine Liturgy on that Saturday for the Feast). We commemorate the falling asleep of our Lord's mother, the most holy Theotokos, on this Feast Day. Our holy Faith teaches us that Christ took her and she now shares in the first fruits of His Resurrection, and she intercedes for us to her Son. In normal times we would have special prayer services of intercession in this Season at Church. This year, our faithful are encouraged to have special prayers in their homes, along with traditional fasting. Parishioners may make an appointment with one of the priests for confession in this season, or ask questions about spiritual matters.
