Feast Day: May 30, 2019

The Feast of the Ascension of the Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ is one of the Great Feasts of the Greek Orthodox Church and honors Jesus who was taken up to Heaven in his resurrected body, in the presence of eleven of his apostles.

The Ascension is celebrated on a Thursday each year on the 40th day after the Great and Holy Feast of Pascha (Πάσχα / Easter.) Since the date for Pascha changes each year, the date of the Feast of the Ascension changes.
