Dormition of the Theotokos

The Feast of Our Most Holy Lady, the Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary is celebrated on August 15th each year. The Feast commemorates the repose or "falling asleep" or the Mother of Jesus Christ, Our Lord. We also affirm through this feast that the Mother of God intercedes for us. Through Christ, she has become the Mother of all of the children of God, embracing us with divine love.

Flowers are also traditionally blessed at this time.
