Timkat: An Ethiopian Celebration of Epiphany

"Last week millions of Ethiopian Orthodox Christians celebrated the feast of Timkat, the most important holiday for the Ethopian Orthodox faithful. Timkat began on January 19th and was celebrated for three days."

Thank you for sharing it! Amazing pictures.

I wonder how long are the Liturgy of Epiphany and the service of blessing the water in the Ethiopian Church as in its sister Coptic Church it lasts so long... And what's more, Ethiopians and Eritreans are known by their Liturgies lasting a few hours...

Pray for persecuted Christians, especially in Serbian Kosovo and Raška, Egypt and Syria
