Calm the sea of errors
In your great peacefulness;
It was you who bore the guiding Lord,
And you who are the blessed bride of God
As we start August, we enter into a period of fasting as we prepare to celebrate the Dormition of the Theotokos. The fast started on August 1st and goes through to August 15th when we celebrate the feast day of the Dormition. As we enter this period we turn our gaze to our chief intercessor to help us navigate the turbulent times we and the world face. This year, we have the blessing of adding a few extra services to our schedule over the next two weeks to enter more fully into this time of preparation and to come together as a community to entreat our Lady, the Mother of God, to pilot us towards the port of heaven.
Most Holy Theotokos Save us!
