The Dormition Fast and Feast
Shudder, O ye heavens! and, O earth, give ear unto these words: God descended once before for our sake He descends again today for His Mother.
–from The Lamentations at the Bier of the Mother of God, Tone 5
The Feast of Dormition is our parish feast and consequently one of the most important parts of Church year for us. You can find our ample service schedule here and many resources for the Dormition Fast and Feast here and here.
