— About the Book —

This pocket-size hieratikon contains all the texts necessary for a deacon or priest in serving the daily hours of the Orthodox Church - Vespers, Compline, Midnight Office, Matins and the hours. Church Slavonic and English texts are provided in parallel, on facing pages. Also included are instructions and additional prayers for the All-Night Vigil and the services of Great Lent, the festal and Sunday prokeimena, and festal megolynaria. The cloth binding is sewn for durability with a stamped cover.

This second edition has been updated with corrections from errata to the first edition and thoroughly revised to conform to the style of the other bilingual service books in this series. It also includes selected texts from the Menologion previously omitted, whilst certain supplementary materials have been excluded as not being needed by the priest or deacon for the performance of these services. Finally, this edition includes more marking ribbons to facilitate the preparation of text from multiple sections throughout a single service.
