Corrections, Additions and Notices

**The printed Liturgical Guide has been discontinued after 2015. The Online Liturgical Guide is now the one-stop source for all weekend Service Texts which are now posted more than one month in advance. However, if you need these earlier, write to Subdeacon Peter Samore at the email address listed below. Other Service Texts are posted on the website of the Diocese of Los Angeles and the West.

**The Liturgical Texts of the Online Liturgical Guide now utilize prosomia ("model hymns") as set by Holy Transfiguration Monastery of Brookline, Mass. Chanters can take the verses marked with asterisks and set them to the music syllable by syllable. Click the links either for books either with lyrics or without lyrics.

**The Diocese of Los Angeles and the West has published an exhaustive Service Texts section. It includes word-for-word texts of the Divine Services (Vespers, Orthros, Divine Liturgy Variables, etc.) for Great Feasts, Diocesan Patronal Feasts, Great Lent and more. The Diocese of Wichita and Mid-America has also published extensive liturgical resources for clergy and chanters.

**A practice for Orthros: the Typikon prescribes that, when the theotokion for the tone of the week is not used at the Apolytikia, it replaces the theotokion in the first Kathisma in Orthros. Starting in July 2014, the Antiochian Archdiocese will begin to follow this practice.

About the Online Liturgical Guide

The Service Texts are posted in Rich Text Format (RTF) that can be used in any word-processing software for making booklets, as well as the traditional Portable Document Format (PDF). If you find any typos or have any questions regarding the Service Texts, do not hesitate to email Subdeacon Peter Samore at service_texts@antiochianladiocese.org.
