Feast of Mount Quskwam

Every year on Hidar 6, we commemorate the return of our Holy Mother Saint Mary with her Beloved Son Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Saint Joseph and Salome from their flight to Egypt and Ethiopia, then after their rest at Quskwam Mountain.

We also celebrate the day of our Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ and His disciples gathering together on Mount Quskuam. The Lord consecrated His Tabernacle and Church, and performed the consecration of the Offering with His disciples on that day.  This was the first consecration of the Offering on Mount Quskuam, according to what Saint Theophilus and Saint Cyril, Archbishop of the city of Alexandria, testify concerning this matter.

May our Lord’s mercy and the intercession of Our Holy Mother Saint Mary be with us, Amen!
