|BEHEADING OF THE JOHN THE BAPTIST
Vigil and Confession: 6:00 p.m., September 10 Saturday
Liturgy: 10:00 a.m., September 11 Sunday
On this day we remember how, by the command of King Herod Antipus, St. John, the Forerunner of the Lord, the greatest born of woman, for having rebuked the king for his lawless cohabitation with his brother’s wife, was beheaded at the demand of the daughter of the latter, who pleased King Herod by her dancing at a banquet. On the day of this feast a strict fast is appointed, as a sign of lamentation and of denunciation of the gluttony of Herod at the banquet. On this day we also commemorate all Orthodox warriors killed on the field of battle, who, like St. John, suffered for the truth. Read more here.

On this day we celebrate the birth of the Most Holy Virgin Mary to the holy righteous Joachim and Anna in the Galilean city of Nazareth. St. Joachim was a descendent of the royal line of David, and St. Anna — of the priestly line of Aaron. The Virgin Mary was granted to them in their old age, after their intensified prayers that the barrenness of Anna be loosed. The name Maria in translation from the Hebrew means "high," "excellent," or "lady." Read more about the feast on our website…

The Exaltation of the Cross of the Lord, in commemoration of the suffering of the Lord upon the cross, is a fast day, on which not only ferial foods but even fish may not be eaten.
