On Sunday, Sept. 18, we commemorate two great saintly married couples: Holy Prophet Zachariah and Righteous Elizabeth, the parents of St John the Baptist and Right-believing Prince Peter and Princess Fevronia of Murom.
In Russian tradition, Prince Peter and Princess Fevronia have become patrons of the married couples and of those who want to get married.
For this reason the theme of the day will be "Family, Love, and Faithfulness."
During the Liturgy we will offer prayers for those who are married, those who want to be married, and for all the families.
