Ethiopians celebrate Holy Days

Ethiopians celebrate Holy Days Choir members from the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church of Our Savior in Minneapolis sang their traditional praises in Amharic, the Ethiopian national language, and in Ge’ez, the Ethiopian Orthodox church language, at the Mall of America for the 18th Annual Holy Days and Holidays of Thanksgiving Around the World on Sunday, November 21st.

Some fifteen other groups shared their sacred arts during this two day event of “Spirituality and the Visual & Performing Arts” in the Sears Court at the Mall.
