The Entry of the Theotokos into the Temple
November 21

Troparion — Tone 4

Today is the prelude of the good will of God,

of the preaching of the salvation of mankind.

The Virgin appears in the temple of God,

in anticipation proclaiming Christ to all.

Let us rejoice / and sing to her:

"Rejoice, O Fulfillment of the Creator's dispensation."

Kontakion — Tone 4

The most pure Temple of the Savior;

the precious Chamber and Virgin;

the sacred Treasure of the glory of God,

is presented today to the house of the Lord.

She brings with her the grace of the Spirit,

therefore, the angels of God praise her:

“Truly this woman is the abode of heaven.”

•    providing for education of the Faith,
•    engaging in philanthropy,
