Transfiguration of the Lord is August 19 
16/8/17, 06:00 PM

The great feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord falls on August 19 each year. At this feast, following the Divine Liturgy, we bless the first fruits that are becoming ripe as the harvest begins. In the Greek tradition usually grapes were blessed. In the Russian tradition usually apples. Any fruit is acceptable. Please bring your basket with fruits to the Divine Liturgy on the feast!
