These prayers are taken from the little red Pocket Prayer Book for Orthodox Christians, published by the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese. The General Intercession prayers are taken from the Fellowship of Saint Philip Prayer Book, also published in accordance with the Archdiocese. Both are available in our Bookstore.

Please note that one’s prayer rule should be in accordance with the direction given by one’s Spiritual Father, and the prayers listed on these pages are not meant to replace such direction. They are here for your convenience.

*From the Holy and Great Sunday of Pascha until the Saturday of Renewal Week, in place of the usual Morning and Evening Prayers, Nocturns, the Hours, Compline, and the Prayers of Thanksgiving after Holy Communion, the Paschal Hours are used.

The teachings and doctrine of the Church are embedded in its music, and we are continually amazed at how much we learn about Orthodox theology through our ministries of song. The unfortunate side of this rich, complex worship is that it prevents the average lay person from having access to the texts that comprise a service… until now!

We were thrilled when the Archdiocese began online publication of variable texts in their entirety and immediately wanted to make these hymns available to our parishioners and visitors. Our hope is that you will use them to follow the service more closely and take them home to meditate on the teachings contained there.
