Nativity Fast
28 November 2019 – 6 January 2020
The Nativity fast begins on November 28 and lasts forty days. This period of fasting begins directly after the commemoration of the Holy Apostle Philip, on the November 28 according to the Church calendar, and concludes with the Nativity Feast itself. The Nativity fast is not as strict as Great Lent or the Dormition fast and can be compared to the Apostle’s fast: fish can be eaten on every Saturday and Sunday, as well as on festal days of the Church calendar that do not fall on Wednesday or Friday. It was instituted by the Church so that we would worthily greet the feast of the Nativity of Christ after having cleansed our hearts by prayer and repentance.

On this day we remember how the holy righteous Joachim and Anna, the parents of the Most Holy Virgin Mary, fulfilling their promise to consecrate Her to God, when she had reached three years of age, brought her to the temple in Jerusalem, where She was met by the high priest Zacharius himself, who, in accordance with a special revelation from God, led Her into the very Holy of Holies, into which he himself might enter but once a year. This feast is notable in that it is, as it were, the threshold of the Nativity of Christ.

St. Nicholas the Wonderworker

Liturgy: 9:30 a.m., December 19 Thursday
Holy Hierarch Nicholas is commemorated by the Church on December 6/19. St. Nicholas is commemorated by the Orthodox Church on every Thursday as well! Anyone who has ever prayed to St. Nicholas for help knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that he not only did exist, but still does exist, for our God is a God of the living (cf. Mt. 22:32). St Nicholas' title 'wonderworker' comes from the multitude of reports of miracles that issued forth at his intercession, both during his life and after.
