In honoring Himamat (Holy Week) and Siklet (Good Friday), many Christian Ethiopians attend solemn and sacred church services throughout the country, fasting and praying in remembering the crucifixion of Jesus Christ every year.

It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”

Luke 23: 44 – 46

Happy Good Friday!
