The Nativity Fast (Advent) - 11/04/19

The Nativity Fast (Advent) began on Friday, November 15th, and lasts through the Divine Liturgy of Christmas Day.

During this time, Orthodox Christians fast and pray in preparation for the Feast. According to the Tradition of the Church, we observe this Fast by abstaining from meat (including poultry and eggs), dairy, olive oil and wine. On Wednesdays and Fridays, we also abstain from fish.

While many people relax these rules, particularly until after Thanksgiving, it is important that we do as much as we can, so that we can properly prepare ourselves spiritually for the Great Feast of our LORD’s Nativity.
