Commemoration of the Consecration of the first altar for St. Nicholas, Bishop of Mora for Jacobite Christians

On this day, the church commemorates the consecration of the first altar that was built by the Jacobite Christians, who were residing in the land of Egypt for St. Nicholas, bishop of Mora. St. Nicholas was one of the fathers of the council of Nicea, the Three Hundred and Eighteen. This altar was built in the church of the saint Anba Shenouda, to the east of the city. His prayers be with us. Amen.
