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 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.                     Divider فاصل - موقع الأنبا تكلاهيمانوت
