Feast of the Annunciation: March 25

Today is the Feast of the Annunciation, when Christians celebrate the Archangel Gabriel’s announcement that Mary would bear the Holy Child Jesus. Note that today is nine months from Christmas Day, December 25.

Take a moment to read the prayers and Bible lessons for today.

Because today is a Feast Day, your Lenten disciplines do not apply (BCP, p. 17). As Lent is a season of fasting, today’s feasting cancels it out. Joy!
