The priest at the church wants to do the LItia service at the Great Vespers on Nativity Eve following the Royal Hours.  However, as this is a prescribed Vesperal Liturgy, I do not see how you can do this as Litia occurs before the Aposticha and there is no Aposticha at this Vespers.  I think my priest just wants to do it because it's cool and doesn't really have a good sense for the typicon.

The only time I can find a Litia and Artoklasia is at Great Compline following the Little Doxology.  But I'm pretty sure we're not doing that.

Am I correct in this?

Tell your priest he should check with his Bishop, I am guessing that his Bishop would tell him to either do it in its proper place during Great Compline of the Vigil, or after the Vesperal Liturgy or not to do it at all.

Yes, indeed.  The hierarchs are particularly cautious with innovating during a great feast (as they should be).  Definitely advise your priest to "clear" everything with the bishop first.

Essentially, yes, Litija (or Liti, Litia) is the procession of the icon.
