November 2017
November 21 – the Entrance of the Theotokos into the Temple
On this, one of the “twelve Great Feasts” of the year, we honor the Mother of God who in bearing Christ in her womb became the living temple of the uncontainable God. We also remember the words of St. Paul: “Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s spirit dwells in you?” (I Cor. 3:16) At the vigil on the eve of the feast we hear for the first time this year the Katavasia of the Christmas Canon: “Christ is born! Glorify Him!” This year the feast falls on a Monday evening and Tuesday Morning.

November 23 — Thanksgiving Day
In the morning of this civil holiday we have the opportunity to gather as the Church of God and celebrate the akathist: “Glory to God for All Things.” Throughout the years many have expressed the conviction that this glorious hymn is one of the best opportunities to invite someone to the Orthodox Church for the very first time. On this holiday, invite a relative, friend, coworker, or neighbor to church.
