Printable Reader’s Services

My daughter is our choir director and has been putting together reader’s services for parishioners to print out and use at home. She has been working on these for Holy Week and Pascha and beginning today is allowing me to share them for our family and friends everywhere. I know many people will follow services online and have no need for the services done in the home but there are many who would prefer to do these services rather than to follow online.

So beginning with Vespers for Palm Sunday and going through Pascha you can print out any and all of these services to do at home. As she completes them and I upload them, they will become live links. Check back often. All these services are modeled after our own parish services. We are under the Orthodox Church in America.
