Feast Day: November 21

The Feast of the Entrance into the Temple of the Most Holy Lady the Theotokos (Θεοτόκου) and Ever-Virgin Mary is one of the Great Feasts of the Greek Orthodox Church and honors when, as a young child, the Virgin Mary entered the Temple in Jerusalem.

The icon depicts High Priest, Zacharias, waiting to receive Mary. Her parents, Joachim and Anna, offer her to God, and her escorts stand behind them.
