In the Orthodox Church, it is common practice to bless grapes (as well as any other fruit) and vegetables on the great feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord. This feast normally falls on August 6. At St George we will be celebrating this feast day on Sunday, August 4.
It is also common practice to bless all fragrant herbs on the great feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos: this feast normally falls on August 15. We will be celebrating that feast on Sunday, August 18
Please feel free to bring the items on the appropriate day/celebration!
