The Ember Days (BCP pg. 260), which date back to the early centuries of the faith, are days of fasting at the change of the season. They are a time to thank God for the seasons and harvest gifts, or petition Him with our prayers (BCP pg. 39-40 & 51). We remember our clergy (BCP pg. 32) and those in ministry especially on Ember Days. It is traditionally a time for ordinations. 
Agape is BACK!

The Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

During the reign of Constantine, first Roman Emperor to profess the Christian faith, his mother Helena went to Israel and there undertook to find the places especially significant to Christians. She was helped in this by the fact that in their destructions around 135, the Romans had built pagan shrines over many of these sites. Having located, close together, what she believed to be the sites of the Crucifixion and of the Burial (at locations that modern archaeologists think may be correct), she then had built over them the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which was dedicated on 14 September 335. It has become a day for recognizing the Cross in a festal atmosphere that would be inappropriate on Good Friday as a symbol of triumph, as a sign of Christ’s victory over death, and a reminder of His promise, “And when I am lifted up, I will draw all men unto me.” (John 12:32)

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. Acts 2:42
