19 May - Wife Day or Day of the myrrh-bearing women
In 2022, Joanna, Mary, and Salome were officially added to the Episcopal Church liturgical calendar with a feast day as the "myrrh-bearing women" on 3 August.
The Sunday of Myrrh-bearing Women falls on the second Sunday following Pascha. Most of them were quite wealthy, so they helped not only morally, but also financially. The myrrh-bearers had brought funeral spices and ointments to finish commiting Christ's body to the grave. They were the first to see the empty tomb and were instructed by the risen Lord to bring the joyful news to the apostles.
St. Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus are also commemorated on this day.
