Corrections, Additions and Notices

**The printed Liturgical Guide has been discontinued. 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.

**The Liturgical Texts of the Online Liturgical Guide now utilize prosomoia ("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: our 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. Since July 2014, the Antiochian Archdiocese has followed 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.

Portions of the Archdiocesan Service Texts include texts from The Menaion, The Great Horologion, The Pentecostarion, and The Psalter of the Seventy, which are Copyright © Holy Transfiguration Monastery, Brookline, Massachusetts, and are used with permission. All rights reserved. These works may not be further reproduced, beyond printing out a single copy for personal non-commercial use, without the prior written authorization of Holy Transfiguration Monastery.
