Three-Day Period of Fasting and Prayer for Egypt

In response to the tragic events in our homeland of Egypt, the Coptic Orthodox bishops of North America have declared January 31-February 2, 2011 as a period of fasting and prayer.

During these three days, we are to observe strict abstinence as any Wednesday or Friday. In addition, many churches will offer the celebration of the Divine Liturgy every day during this period to pray for peace and safety in Egypt and for all of our Egyptian brothers and sisters.

May God remember the land of Egypt and her people.
