For those who would like to pray the services at home, we will provide suggested services each week – especially for each Sunday – together with music for some parts of the services.

Try to keep Sunday and other Holy Days prayerfully in whatever way you can, so that we can be united in faith and in love, even if we cannot be together physically.

READER’S TYPIKA/OBEDNITSA


If you are using services without a priest being present, you should follow the following general rules:

1. All services begin with the exclamation: “Through the prayers of our holy fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy upon us, and save us. Amen.”

2. All the priest’s prayers, and exclamations at the end of prayers, are omitted. The exclamation at the end of the Lord’s Prayer is replaced by “Through the prayers of our holy fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy upon us, and save us. Amen.”

3. In place of longer litanies (e.g. the Great Litany and Litany of Fervent Supplication) say “Lord, have mercy” twelve times. In place of each Little Litany, say “Lord, have mercy” three times.

4. When there is a Gospel reading, it is not sung or intoned, but read in an ordinary voice.

5. All other hymns, psalms and prayers are read or sung as when a priest serves.

6. The blessing at the end of the service is replaced by “Through the prayers of our holy fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy upon us, and save us. Amen.”

If no one present is a confident singer, parts of the service which are normally sung can be chanted on one note, or simply read.
