What is the Divine Liturgy?
The Divine Liturgy in the Coptic Orthodox Church is the central and most sacred act of worship. The church celebrates from the Liturgy of Saint Basil, Saint Gregory, or Saint Cyril. The Divine Liturgy includes the words and Covenant of our Lord Jesus Christ spoken at the Last Supper. It includes the consecration of bread and wine, which become the body and blood of Christ, according to John 6. Every part of the Coptic Orthodox Liturgy has its origins in the Bible, from the prayers and hymns to the daily readings. Worship is divided into several main sections, beginning with pre-services of Matins and prayers from the Book of Hours (called the "Agpeya"). Next is the Liturgy, which includes the Offering, where the finest bread is selected and the wine is presented. In the Anaphora, the church is lifted up into the holy presence of the throne of God surrounded by angels in preparation for the Epiclesis (Greek for "invocation of the Holy Spirit"), where the bread and wine are transformed into the body and blood of Christ. The liturgy culminates in the distribution of Holy Communion, where the faithful partake of the true presence of Christ to become one with Him and with each other.

What is Vespers?
Vespers in the Coptic Orthodox Church is a significant liturgical service held in the evening, typically observed on Saturday evenings and the eves of major feasts. It is a part of the daily cycle of prayers and worship, which includes various hymns, psalms, and biblical readings. During Vespers, we gather to offer praise and thanksgiving to God, seeking spiritual reflection and preparation for the upcoming liturgy. The service includes the lighting of candles (symbolizing angelic light and the presence of the Holy Spirit), and raising of incense (symbolizing our prayers rising to Heaven).
