The St. Xenia Sisterhood is named after St. Xenia of St. Petersburg, the Holy Fool for Christ's Sake. Our feast day is celebrated on January 24/February 6. Each year a Vigil for St. Xenia is celebrated on the eve of the feast (January 23/February 5) at which all members of the Sisterhood are very strongly encouraged to partake of the Mystery of Confession. The Divine Liturgy is celebrated on the feast day itself, at which all members of the Sisterhood are again very strongly encouraged to partake of the Mystery of Holy Communion.
