Greek Orthodox Holidays Holy Feast Days


Major Greek Orthodox holidays (holy feast days) include the Twelve Great Feasts and Greek Orthodox Easter (Pascha / Πάσχα). The Greek Orthodox ecclesiastical year begins in September with the Feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos, which celebrates the birth of the Virgin Mary, and ends in August with the Dormition of the Theotokos, which is Mary's transition to heaven.
