The '''Dormition''' (Falling Asleep) of the [[Theotokos]] is one of the [[Great Feasts]] of the [[Orthodox Church]], celebrated on [[August 15]]
and August 28 (according to [[Old Calendarists]]), using the [[Gregorian Calendar]], [[Julian Calendar]], and [[Revised Julian Calendar]]. This feast, which is also sometimes called the Assumption, commemorates the death, resurrection and glorification of Christ's mother. It proclaims that Mary has been "assumed" by [[God]] into the heavenly kingdom of [[Christ]] in the fullness of her spiritual and bodily existence.
