Kidase English PDF
Kidase is a daily worship service offered by The Ethiopian Orthodox Church. Kidase was created by the holy apostles nearly two thousand years ago and given a rhythmic structure by the Ethiopian Saint Yared 1500 years ago.
Kidase means to give thanks to The Lord by mankind and the angles alike. Kidase also has the purpose of converting the wine and bread into the Holy Sacrament (the blood and body of Christ), as Jesus did on the eve of his crucifixion.
