Liturgy
 •
It is derived from two Greek words "lios" means "people" and "ergon" means "work." The original Greek word was used to express a public work of any kind, not only religious, but by the time of the Septuagint it had come to be applied particularly to the services of the Temple.

 •
Now the word is used for all church worship, especially the Eucharist as the chief act of public worship.

 •
The main church liturgies are: 1- Eucharist liturgy (Holy Mass). 2- Baptismal Liturgy. 3- Marriage liturgy (Matrimony). 4- Blessing of the water. 5- Ordinance of bishops, priests, and deacons. 6- Consecration of the churches.
