From Friday morning to Saturday evening there is prayer that takes place in every church in memory of Jesus Christ.This is a special day for the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, and it is celebrated with great devotion and in a very ancient way. On this day, the faithful who have been fasting the whole day without any water or food, dressed in their dazzling white clothes, folk to church to attend the prayers and performance of the priest and deacons. It really creates a special feeling to witness the devotion of the faithful and the special practices made on this day remembering the suffering of Jesus Christ when he was crucified. Every performance of the priest and the deacons as well as the devotion of the people takes you centuries back.
