Dormition of the Theotokos
Start Date: 8/15/2015 All Day
End Date: 8/15/2015
Event Description:
Orthodox Christian holyday: Preceded by two weeks of fasting, the Dormition of the Theotokos (the Falling-Asleep of the One Who Gave Birth to God) is the Feast Day that commemorates when Mary, the God-Bearer, died, was resurrected, and bodily ascended to Heavenly glory. The Feast signifies that all who “have Christ born in them by the Holy Spirit” will share Mary’s fate. [1] Orthodox Christians joyfully break their fast with a feast and observe the Dormition with worship.
