St. Mary’s Feast Day

Dormition of the Theotokos – August 15

Our parish celebrates its feast day each year on August 15, The Feast of the Dormition of Our Most Holy Lady, the Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary.

The Feast commemorates the repose (dormition and kimisis in Greek) or “falling-asleep” of the Mother of Jesus Christ, our Lord. The Feast also commemorates the translation or assumption into heaven of the body of the Theotokos.
