Faith of the Universal Syrian (Syriac) Orthodox Church - X

Sacred Days

The Syrian Orthodox church expects its members to observe Sunday and sacred days as holy and to refrain from routine engagements such as sexual relations during those days.

Traditionally there are nine such sacred days a year.

They are: Christmas, Baptism of Jesus, Jesus' entry into the Church, Gabriel's Announcement to St. Mary of the impending birth of the savior, Ascension, Transfiguration, Feast of the Cross, the ascension of St. Mary the mother of God and remembrance of St. Peter & St. Paul.

In addition to these, other important occasions are St. Thomas day, Passover, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Resurrection (Easter) during Passion Week.
