The Feast of Virgin Mary

The third most important Feast in our Orthodox Church (after Easter and Christmas) is the Feast of the Virgin Mary (15th August).

The celebrations start in our Tradition from the Eve of the Feast.

Thus, tonight we had celebrated the Great Vespers and we sung the Lamentations dedicated to the Mother of God.

We also had a procession around our temporary Church, carrying with us the holy icon of Our Lady.

Many of our parishioners had attended this special Service. Tomorrow is the actual Festival. We shall have Holy Services in the morning as well as a BBQ afterwards.
