Apostles Fast Begins


From the second Monday after Pentecost until the feast of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul on June 29th, Orthodox Christians celebrate the Apostles Fast. (Due to the late date of Pascha, the Apostles Fast does not occur in 2013.)

To learn more about the Orthodox approach to fasting, please visit the Feasts and Fasts page of Our Discover Orthodox Christianity section.
