Every Wednesday and Friday the mass start in the mid day . If you are interested to attend the Mass you must be there earlier than the Mass starts in the mid day(which is 11:30 am the mass starts at 12:00 am then ends at 2:30 pm which means 2 hrs and 30 minutes stay) But keep in mind that you should pay the entrance fee for the church , the n you will be able to join ! Once If the mass is started you won't be able to get in to the Church even if you pay the entrance ! Do not to forget to take off your shoes and wear Ethiopian Orthodox church wear called (NETELA) . Blessed time !

Yes every one is welcome to Attend Mass Service at this Church! There is a regular daily mass and the best Time to visit is on the day of SELASIE which is often on the 7th of each month, EC it could be 15/16 GC. Sunday is also the best time to see....no fee for the mass but an entry fee to visit the Church so if one pays to visit the church this ticket is valid to attend the celebration on the following day!
