Story of the Miracle of Moving El Mokatam Mountain in Egypt

In commemoration of this miracle, the Coptic Orthodox Church observes three days of fasting before the beginning of the Nativity Fast. The Miracle was performed by Simon the Tanner (10th century), also known as Saint Simon the Shoemaker (Sama'an el-kharraz). Saint Simon lived during the reign of the Fatimid Caliph Al-Muizz Li-Deenillah (972-975) and Abraham the Syrian who became the 62 nd Coptic Pope at that time (975 to 978).

Sunday School is now every Saturday. It will no longer be held on Sunday after the liturgy.
