Feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos
We will be celebrating the Feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos on Thursday, September 7th with 5 PM Matins and 6 PM Vespers.
Why do we celebrate this feast? Let the words of the Apolytikion assist in the answer:
Your birth, O Theotokos, brought joy to the whole world,
for from you dawned the sun of righteousness, Christ our God.
Freeing us from the curse, He gave us His blessings.
Abolishing death, He granted us eternal life.
