Is there really even a standard practice of when to open and close the Holy Doors and Curtain in America anymore? Of the 3 Orthodox churches in my town, 1 leaves the Holy Doors open from Orthros to the End of Liturgy and is curtain less. This Parish is GOA. 1 Opens the Curtain at the "Blessed Be The Kingdom" and leaves it open until the Great Entrance, then it's again opened at the exclamation "The doors, the doors!", then it's closed when the Priest says "Holy Things...." and then opened after communion and stays that way until the end of the liturgy. This parish is OCA. The last parish, which is also OCA, opens the Holy Curtains and Doors at the "Blessed Be The Kingdom" and leaves them open until the Litany of The Catechumens, where the Holy Doors and Curtain are closed. They are opened for good when the priest exclaims "the doors....". So here, I have three parishes, 2 of which belong to the same jurisdiction, that follow different practices. What's done at your Church?
