The Holy Great Fast - February 20 - April 15, 2017

The Holy Great Fast is considered a time of spiritual renewal. The 55 days of the Holy Great Fast are the most Holy days of fasting of the Coptic Church. Fifty-five days include the forty days, which were fasted by the Lord Himself, the Passion Week, and the first initial week to prepare us spiritually before this great season of renewal.

Quotes of Our Fathers

The man who follows Christ in solitary mourning is greater than he who praises Christ amid the congregation of men.
