Difference between Coptic orthodox and Ethiopian orthodox church

Hello i am from the Ethiopian orthodox church and about a week ago some of my deacon friends visited a Coptic orthodox church here n Texas and i was wondering what is the difference between the two Ethiopian Orthodox and Coptic orthodox church. 


  • The Ethiopian orthodox church has their curtain closed during liturgy while the Coptic church theirs open.
  • We are the same faith, the same church. The differences are in culture and the way we chant the liturgy. Call a nearby Coptic parish and ask to visit and pray in the liturgy one day. Discover the differences, which show a variety of beauty in our Oriental Orthodox churches.
