Consecration of the Church of St. Sergius and St. Bacchus

This day marks the consecration of the church of St. Sergius and St. Bacchus in the city of Rusafa. When St. Sergius was martyred in this city, some believers carried his body, prepared it for burial, hid it in their home and lit lamps and candles before it. When the era of persecution ended, they brought the body out and a church was built in the Saint's name. Fifteen bishops and a large number of people gathered on this day and attended the consecration of the church. When the body of the Saint was brought to the church, scented oil flowed forth from it and many sick people who were anointed with it in faith were healed. May His blessings be with us. Amen.

Commemoration of the Preaching of St. Bartholomew, the Apostle

On this day, we also commemorate St. Bartholomew, one of the Twelve Apostles, who preached in the oasis of Al-Khargah, where he led the people to the knowledge of God. May His prayers be with us and glory be to our God forever. Amen.
