Hello to all, just found this site and I am very pleased that I have.
I am to be ordained Deacon ina few months and am having trouble learning Greek. Does anyone know of sites where parts of the Liturgy may be downloaded for learning? I am presently struggling my way through the Lord's Prayer and must soon look at the Small Litany in Greek. I have bought a few useful resources, but can anyone suggest a book that specifically focusses on Liturgical Greek?
I may simply ask our priest if I can record him in church, but any help would be most welcome.
Stephen.

Congratulations on your up-coming ordination Smiley I think there's a recording of the Divine Liturgy on the goarch.org website. You can also find the Greek text of the Liturgy there. I'd recommend just listening and reading along. It's just a case of memorisation and getting the pronuniation right.

If you want to actually learn the language, I'm not sure there are any books specifically on liturgical Greek. Jeremy Duff's Elements of NT Greek and the Cambridge Reading (Ancient) Greek: Grammar and Exercises are both excellent.
