  • The Dormition of Righteous Anna, mother of the Most Holy Theotokos

    Dormition of St. Anna (httpoca.orgsaintslives20130725102086-dormition-of-the-righteous-anna-the-mother-of-the-most-holy-theo)Saint Anna was the daughter of the priest Matthan and his wife Mary. She was of the tribe of Levi and the lineage of Aaron. According to Tradition, she died peacefully in Jerusalem at age 79, before the Annunciation to the Most Holy Theotokos.

    During the reign of St Justinian the Emperor (527-565), a church was built in her honor at Deutera. Emperor Justinian II (685-695; 705-711) restored her church, since St Anna had appeared to his pregnant wife. It was at this time that her body and maphorion (veil) were transferred to Constantinople.

    St Anna is also commemorated on September 9.
