His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph has raised the bar substantially for the Antiochian Orthodox Archiocese for Great Lent.www.antiochian.org/sites/default/files/liturgical_instructions_spring_2016_0.pdf
This week, all parishes must serve Great Compline with a quarter of the Great Canon of St. Andrew of Crete each week night Monday - Thursday, with Presanctified iturgy on Wednesday and Salutations on Friday.
The subsequent three weeks follow typical Otthodox Lenten practice of Great Compline one evening, Presantified on Wednesdays, and Salutations on Friday.
During the Fifth Week of Great Lent all parishes are required to serve the ENTIRE Great Canon of Repentance of St. Andrew of Crete on Wednesday along with a recitation of the Vita of St. Mary of Egypt. Presanctified is to be served on Thursday of that week.
Pray for Megadynamis for the faithful of the Archdiocese; and, espeically, for its many bi-vocational Clergy.
