CORRECTIONS AND ADDITIONS:

Notice of corrections between the printed 2015 Liturgical Guide and the Online Liturgical Guide will be posted here.

**Parishes are to offer the Procession of Icons around the church for the Sunday of Orthodoxy on March 1 either following “Blessed be the Name of the Lord” in Divine Liturgy, or later that night in Lenten Sunday Vespers. In either case, take the order as found in the Lenten Sunday Vespers published for that night.

**We have provided Liturgical Texts for Lenten Sunday Vespers as a convenience for parishes hosting these services in Pan-Orthodox gatherings.

**So that parishes can plan their schedules well in advance, His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH has issued instructions for offering the divine services from the Meeting (Presentation) of our Lord, to Great Lent and the Annunciation, to Holy Week, Pascha and Bright Season, 2015. Also, please read this pertinent introduction from Archpriest Thomas Zain, Archdiocesan Vicar General.

**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: the 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. Starting in July 2014, the Antiochian Archdiocese will begin to follow this practice.
