Feast of Saint John the Baptist

The Feast of Saint John the Baptist is one of two celebrations that are commemorated on the birthday of a Saint –the second being the birth date of the Virgin Mary– instead of the day of death.

Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches also commemorate the death of St. John on the 29th of August.
