Serbain DL (time sensitive)
« on: May 14, 2011, 10:08:02 PM »
I have made plans to hopefully attend a Serbian parish near mine on Sunday(tommorow), and I was curious. How much does the liturgy differ in comparsion to the Russian, and what should i expect?

any thoughts are appreicated

I've attended Divine Liturgy at a Serbian church a number of times.

The Liturgy doesn't differ, at all. 

People did tend to sit more than at my Ukrainian parish, but, that might just be a local thing.

The Liturgy was sung in Church Slavonic, so, I was able to "understand", although, I would have still been able to follow, if I hand't understood the language.

The sermon was in Serbian, which I didn't understand.

...a tiny bell was rung during the Epiklesis...which we don't do at my church.

Otherwise, all was the same.  I felt right at home.

Expect to go visit with the Lord.  :)

When you say sit, does that infer pews in the church?

In the one I attended, yes, there were pews.

Don't be turned off by pews.  Our Faith does not hinge on wooden seats being in the church, or not.

I stood...and nobody who was sitting yelled at me for standing.

Just stand, if you wish to.

No need to apologize!  :)  I just didn't want someone to skip going to DL because there were pews in the church.

:)

If you are comfortable with the Russian Liturgy, you will do fine with a Serbian one.

Relax...

(...and let us know how it goes.)

Make sure the priest is going to be there! I've visited one Serbian parish, and I had the terrible luck of picking the week that the priest was away.  >:( ;D :D

I'm not sure what I said that was confusing? :)  There's a Serbian parish near me, I went there one Sunday instead of to the Antiochian parish, and the Serbian priest was away for the weekend. Not that it was a bad experience, but I just would have liked to have talked to him.

The Ukrainian Orthodox Church nearest me shares a priest with another church. They have liturgy every other week.

Then, a few months ago, my priest's wife died on Saturday evening. We had a Reader's Service on Sunday morning.

There are lots of reasons, especially in small parishes, that a priest might not be available each and every Sunday.
