Reminder-- fast day on Sunday August 29th Beheading of John the Baptist
The Beheading of St John the Baptist, a Feast day established by the Church, is also a strict fast day because of the grief of Christians at the violent death of the saint. In some Orthodox cultures pious people will not eat food from a flat plate, use a knife, or eat food that is round in shape on this day.
Please remember to bring only strictly lenten food to church this Sunday-- no meat, fish, eggs or dairy.
