The Great Fast | Abiy Tsom

The Great Fast is considered the holiest fast because our Lord Jesus Christ Himself fasted on our behalf 40 days and 40 nights (Matt 4:2).During this Lent, we follow the example set by Him, using the various themes set up by our father St. Yared to prepare us for the light of Christ's Resurrection. From a week of preparation before the 40 days, and a week after the 40-Holy Week-where we concentrate on the sufferings of our Savior, our church has designed it so that we may be prepared to lead a life with our creator.
