Ethiopians around Holy Sepulchre

Unknown by much of the world, monks and nuns of the Ethiopians Orthodox Church, have for centuries quietly maintained the only presence by black people in one of Christianity's holiest sites-the Church of the Holy Sepulchre of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem. For more than 1500 years, the Church of Ethiopia survived in Jerusalem. They are attracted in Jerusalem not by a hope for material gain or comfort, but by faith, even though they lives in poverty.
