+Christ is in our Midst!+

I need some assistance in identifying the feast day of my name saint.

I converted to Orthodoxy and was received by baptism at Pascha in 2003. MY birth name is Jonathan David, and my priest granted that I could keep my name as it corresponds to Righteous Jonathan, the friend of King David.

I've searched online, in the Prologue from Ochrid, etc. but have been unsuccessful in finding his feast-day.

Can someone suggest another resource, or perhaps tell me what the day is?

His unworthy servant,

Jonathan

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Your patronal Icon is available  from Come and See Icons look under group icons.  I assume that you would either onserve the Feast Day of Prophet David as the Righteous Jonathan is affiliated with that Saint strongly or just observe it on all Saints Day.  I too have not been able to find it but I am still looking. Your priest should be able to direct you to the appropriate feast day.

In Christ,
Thomas

Thomas-

Thank you for your response!

I have an icon of Righteous Jonathan that I purchased from Come and See. My priest was unsure (and so far has been unable to find) of the feast day for Righteous Jonathan, though he did mention December 26 as a feast to the forefathers (?). That date corresponds to the feast for David the King.

I sincerely appreciate your effort.

In Christ,

Jonathan

I would assume that your feast day would be prior to the Nativity, on The Sunday of the Forefathers.  That is a "catch-all" day for the Old Testament saints.  My friends who are named for Old Testament saints observe that day, unless their saint has a known feast day at another time.

Ah...

Dec. 12

That's probably what he was referring to...

Thanks!

The feastday of the Prophet David is the Sunday after Christmas.
