St. Peter's Church Jaffa

In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (in Greek her name is Dorcas);

she was always doing good and helping the poor.
  About that time she

became sick and died, and her body was washed and placed in an

upstairs room.
  Lydda was near Jaffa; so when the disciples heard that

Peter was in Lydda, they sent two men to him and urged him, “Please

come at once!”

 Peter went with them, and when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the

room. All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the

robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.

 Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his kneesand

prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, “Tabitha, get up.”She

opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up.
  He took her by the hand

and helped her to her feet. Then he called for the believers, especially

the widows, and presented her to them alive.
 This became known all

over Jaffa, and many people believed in the Lord.
