Afternoon Devotions

November 26 @ 3:00 pm

On this occasion, Bahá’ís celebrate the establishment of the Covenant, a core institution of their Faith originating in the explicit instructions of Bahá’u’lláh and assuring the continuity of authoritative interpretation of His teachings and leadership of the Bahá’í community. It is through this institution that the Faith has maintained its distinctive unity and freedom from schism. The Day also honors the station and exemplary life of Bahá’u’lláh’s eldest Son, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, appointed by Him as the “Center of the Covenant” following His passing.

About the Bahá’í Calendar and Holy Days

The Baha’i Faith has its own calendar, called the Badí’ Calendar. It is a solar calendar consisting of 19 months of 19 days each (361 days), plus “Intercalary Days” (four in ordinary years and five in leap years) to adjust the calendar to the solar year. The days and months are named after the attributes of God. The Nineteen Day Feast, the primary community gathering for Baha’is in each town and city, is held on the first day of each Baha’i month. Eleven Holy Days mark significant events in Baha’i history.
