Notice of corrections between the printed 2014 Liturgical Guide and the Online Liturgical Guide will be posted here.

  • For communities which will offer pan-Orthodox gatherings on the Sundays of Great Lent, the Liturgics Committee has published Lenten Sunday Vespers for their convenience.
  • Great Lent Liturgical Resources, including Texts for the Presanctified Divine Liturgy as served on Wednesdays and Fridays, may be found by clicking this link.
  • In the Orthros Praises of Mar. 30, the first four are for the Resurrection in Tone 7, and the second four are for St. John Climacus in Tone 8.
  • Regarding Orthros of Lazarus Saturday on April 12: the order posted in the Liturgical Text on this webpage supercedes that of the Liturgical Guide.
  • In Orthros of Palm Sunday on April 13, the Evlogetaria are omitted and are replaced with the Abbreviated Polyeleos.
  • In the Divine Liturgy of Palm Sunday on April 13, at the Third Antiphon during the Little Entrance, we chant the Apolytikion of Lazarus Saturday.
