Christ Is Risen!
I have a question, I hope our Reverend Fathers could help me with. My parish priest will be away from today until after June 5Th. I am doing the Obidna Service on those Sundays, but Father asked me to remove the Epitafios/Plaschanitsa from the Holy Altar on Ascension Thursday. Unfortunately, with Father away, no services are planned. I know I should do more than simply remove it from the Altar and place it in its case. Should I do a reader's Vespers on Wednesday night and at the end of the service cense it and around the Altar 3 times and then make 3 prostrations before the Epitafios/Plaschanitsa and then remove it and replace it in its case? Your input will be greatly appreciated.
