All Public Liturgical Services Are Cancelled through Thursday, April 30

From now through Thursday, April 30, 2020, all public liturgical services are cancelled in all of our churches of the Eparchy of Passaic. St. 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.

Please read this latest announcement from our God-loving Bishop Kurt.

The Liturgies for our parish can be viewed on our Facebook Page.

Since many parishes are or will be closed, here is a good link for online or streaming services for Eastern Catholics:

By selecting “Ruthenian Byzantine (Greek) Catholic” you will be able to view many Liturgies from around our own Eparchy of Passic, as well as the other three eparchies of our Church.

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.
