From August 1 to August 15 the Ukrainian Catholic Church celebrates a period called the “Dormition Fast.” Much like the Apostles Fast leading up to the Feast of Ss. Peter and Paul, this period allows us to reorient ourselves towards God and celebrate the Glorious Dormition and then Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven.
