The feast of the <strong>Holy Apostles Peter and Paul is celebrated on June 29th</strong> . From the 4th Century on, the Church has celebrated this feast which is spiritually linked with Holy Pentecost. It stands as the witness of the Apostles immediate fruit at the descent of the Holy Spirit when it came upon them. The Feast is preceded by a fasting period called Saints Peter and Paul Fast.&nbsp; The fast is different from year to year since it always begins on the Monday following All-Saints' Sunday (1st Sun. after Pentecost). The fast in preparation for the feast begins this year on June 12th and continues to the feast on June 29th</p> St. Michael the Archangel Orthodox Church http://www.stmichael-delaware-oca.org/news_170602_4.html
