On July 20, we remember the Russian Martyrs of France: St. Maria (Skobtsova); Fr. Dimitri Klepinin; St. Maria’s son, Yuri; and Ilya Fondaminsky. Martyred by the Nazis for their love of others during the Occupation of France, St. Maria in particular has become a much-beloved modern saint—often called “The Saint of the Open Door.” We have compiled a Pinterest board to remember her life and ongoing work in the Church. St. Maria, pray to the Lord for us! Artwork by @jasonlandsel from @ploughmag

"When Father Paisios was reading the service of the third hour, he suddenly heard someone discreetly knocking on his door. The Elder asked from inside: 'Who is it?' Then, he heard a woman’s voice answering: 'It is me, Euphemia, Father.' 'Which Euphemia?' He asked again...and felt someone coming inside his cell and walking through the corridor. He went to the door and there he saw St. Euphemia, who had miraculously entered his cell through the locked door..." (link)

Even better would be to head to the apple orchard and then come come home to cuddle up with some cider and a good book. Or perhaps a stack of them!

The Procession of the Cross is one of three feasts of the Lord observed in August. (It also marks the beginning of the Dormition Fast.) This feast day has many similarities to the Elevation of the Cross, and we have together a handy dandy resource post full of information and ideas for observing Orthodox feasts of the Cross in your little church! ​​​​​​​​
On January 6/19, we celebrate the Lord’s baptism with the feast of Theophany or Epiphany. This feast is usually accompanied by a house blessing and the blessing of the waters, which makes it an especially fun and interactive feast for kids. The Eve of Theophany (January 5/18) is observed as a fasting day in preparation for the feast, and marks the end of our post-Nativity fast-free period. Click for resources to use in observing Theophany in your little church!
December 13 is the feast day of both St. Lucia (Lucy of Syracuse) and St. Herman of Alaska for those on the New Calendar. Baking figures in celebrations of both saints, which is perfect for this chilly time of year. ☃️ And both saints have a plethora of great resources, which you can find here!
