The Church venerates these two apostles very profoundly; and raises them and honors them exceedingly; especially in the prayer of the partition” or “the division” which pertains to the fast of the apostles and to the feast of the apostles, which we pray during the holy mass.
Welcome to the Official Website of the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Midlands, United Kingdom under the auspices and prayers of His Grace Bishop Missael.
The Church celebrates the memory of the martyrdom of St. Peter and St. Paul on the 5th of Abib, which is the 12th of July. This feast is called in our Church by the name of “The Feast of the Apostles”. Its date is unchanged every year.
