Vespers of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Most Saints are commemorated only on the day of their death (or rather, their entrance into the presence of Christ). But the Church also marks the birth of three figures: our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ himself, his cousin St. John the Baptist, and his mother the Blessed Virgin Mary. John and Mary have unique roles in the earthly life and ministry of Jesus, and thus in the plan of salvation God has worked for us. Join us Thursday, Sept 7 at 7 PM to learn about the birth of Mary, and how her entire life was set aside and sanctified for the glorious role she would play in the Incarnation of God.

Septuagesima

The season of Epiphany concludes and the pre-Lenten season begins on Sunday, February 12 with Septuagesima Sunday. "Septuagesima", coming from the Latin for "seventy", is the Sunday closest to seventy days out from Easter. The three Sundays of the pre-Lenten season are all named for their proximity to the seventieth, sixtieth, and fiftieth days out from Easter, culminating in Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the forty days of Lent.
