CORRECTIONS AND ADDITIONS:

Notice of corrections between the printed 2014 Liturgical Guide and the Online Liturgical Guide will be posted here.

**In the Service Text for Orthros with the Transfer of the Virgin’s Birth, the Hypakoe and Anabathmoi have been corrected to Tone Four.

**His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH has given a blessing to those parishes that need to transfer the feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos from Monday, September 8 to Sunday, September 7, thus suppressing the Forefeast. The Committee on Liturgics has prepared special Service Texts for the transfer that would follow the order of the feast when it falls on a Sunday.

**The Sacred Music Library now includes four-part and Byzantine compositions for the Megalynarion of the Leave-taking (Apodosis) of the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.

**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.

**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.
