We begin the blessed Coptic month of Kiahk, also called the “Marian month” because of its association with our beloved Mother Saint Mary. It is a month of preparation for the glorious Feast of the Nativity and it includes the events that lead up to the Birth of our Lord; namely, the annunciation of St. John the Baptist’s birth, the Annunciation of Christ’s birth, the birth of St. John the Baptist, and the Birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Part of this blessed journey includes joining together with the angels and saints in Church to chant the Kiahk praises, which will begin after Vespers at 7:30 pm and continue until 9 pm. For those attending COR Faith until 8:30 pm, please join us as for the remainder of the praises during this blessed and unique month in our liturgical calendar!
Maythe prayers and intercessions of our beloved Mother Saint Mary be with us andmay we be enriched by the blessings of this Coptic month!
