21 September - Feast of the Nativity of the Virgin
Scripture does not give an account of Marys birth. The Church has celebrated Marys birth since at least the sixth century. A September birth was chosen because the Eastern Church begins its Church year with September. Saint Augustine connects Marys birth with Jesus saving work.
This Feast day is celebrated on September 8 on the Gregorian calendar and September 21 on the Julian calendar.
