-Deacons make the Orban while psalms are being read from the agbeya
-The orbana is round, it is in a circular shape, because a circle has no beginning and no end, just as Jesus has no beginning and no end, but is from everlasting to everlasting.
-In the middle of the orbana is a big cross, which represents Jesus Christ.
-There are 12 crosses around the big cross, which represent the 12 disciples
-There are 5 holes that symbolize the wounds of Jesus Christ; 3 for the nails in the hands and feet of Jesus, 1 for the crown of thorns, and 1 for the spear in His side.
-God is holy and that is why the Coptic words “Agios Otheos, Agios Esheros, Agios Athanatos” are printed on the Orban, which mean “Holy God, holy Mighty, holy Immortal”.
