Rites and Rituals of the Coptic Orthodox Church
Dictionary of Coptic Orthodox Church Terms and Terminology
* It is derived from two Greek words "lios | λαός" means "people" and "ergon | έργο" means "work", and we have discussed this issue before here on st-takla.org in other sections. The original Greek word "λειτουργία" was used to express a public work of any kind, not only religious, but by the time of the Septuagint it had come to be applied particularly to the services of the Temple.
* Now the word is used for all church worship, especially the Eucharist as the chief act of public worship.
* The main church liturgies are:
1- Eucharist liturgy (Holy Mass).
2- Baptismal Liturgy.
3- Marriage liturgy (Matrimony).
4- Blessing of the water.
5- Ordinance of bishops, priests, and deacons.
6- Consecration of the churches.
