Mary’s Announcement Date: March 25
Mary’s Announcement is a religious observance for Coptic Orthodox Christians all over the world.
For Orthodox Churches the feast of Mary’s Announcement does not move in any way even if it falls on the same date as any other more important feast. It is to be celebrated nine months before Christmas. It remembers the moment when the angel Gabriel announced to Mary that she would have a child and he would be called Jesus. It is the moment that starts the Incarnation of Christ.
