Service Texts for the Enthronement Now Available

His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph has blessed the posting of the liturgical texts that follow for the weekend of his Enthronement, set for December 5-7, 2014 at the Archdiocesan Cathedral of St. Nicholas in Brooklyn, New York.

All of the visiting clergy, laity and guests - as well as people watching on television or online - can print or download to their electronic devices these texts so that they can more easily follow the divine services. They also include "patriarchal elements," that is, portions of the services reserved for His Beatitude Patriarch John X of Antioch and All the East, or for his designees. His Beatitude will either preside over or celebrate all divine services.

On December 5-6, the Cathedral celebrates its patron saint, Nicholas the Wonderworker, Archbishop of Myra in Lycia on the anniversary of his passing into eternal life on December 6, 343. On December 7, His Beatitude will celebrate the Patriarchal Divine Liturgy with Sayidna Joseph and approximately 35 Orthodox Christian bishops, many from the Patriarchate of Antioch.
