All Public Liturgical Services Are Suspended at This Time
Based on the request of the authorities and according to the letter from our Bishop dated May 13 there is a suspension of public services at this time. All of our services in the church are private during this time. Saint Michael’s Church will be open for private prayer on Sundays from 10:00am until 6:00pm. The Eucharist will remain in the Chalice on the Holy Table during these times.
If anyone is in need of the Sacrament of anointing, confession or to receive the Eucharist, please call the rectory, 610-933-2819.
The Office of Typika for Home Use
Typika is a Byzantine monastic service which includes the readings of the day; it was originally a service for communion when monks could not attend church services. Anyone can pray this version of the service, individually or in a small group. For the appointed Scriptural readings, on Saturday and Sunday use the ones on the church calendar. On Lenten weekdays, use the readings on the church calendar for the day from Genesis and Proverbs, or read a portion of the Gospel of Saint Mark.
The regular version can be printed on ordinary letter-size paper; the booklet version is set up for printing on legal size (8.5 by 14 inch) paper.
The Moleben for the Sick
This service, from our Slavonic Trebnyk or “Book of Needs”, is a prayer service for one or more people who are sick. It is from the Liturgical Commission’s work on the service for the anointing of the sick, which has been submitted to the Council of Hierarchs for approval. Unlike the sacramental anointing of the sick, however, this service can be prayed by individuals and families on their own.
Both the regular version and booklet version are set up for printing on letter size (8.5 by 11 inch) paper.
