Easter in the Orthodox Church, Gaza city, Palestine. This year the Orthodox easter was celebrated one week after the Catholic congregation celebrated Easter.

The Church of Saint Porphyrius (or St. Porphyrius ChurchArabic: كنيسة القديس برفيريوس‎) is the Orthodox Christian church of Gaza, and the oldest active church in the city. Located in the Zaytun Quarter of the Old City, it is named after the 5th century bishop of Gaza, Saint Porphyrius, whose tomb is situated in the northeastern corner of the church.
