Revision as of 01:43, October 23, 2007 by Magda (talk | contribs) (Daily Saints and Feasts: updated ext links)

A feast day (or festival) is the date a saint, a holy event, or a holy object is commemorated in the liturgical life of the Orthodox Church. A feast day is primarily celebrated through the hymnography of the Church's divine services appointed to be celebrated on such day.

The feast day of a saint is generally the date of his or her death.
