Most Holy Theotokos, save us!

During the Liturgy, in the United States, we commemorate the President.  Whom do they commemorate specifically in Ontario?  I ask because I've been assigned to a church in Ottawa, and want to make sure I get this right before I arrive.

In Christ,

Fr. Michael

My priest (Antiochian) commemorates "Elizabeth our Queen" and sometimes adds one or more of "the Royal Family, the Governor-General, Parliament in session".

You may have noticed that Bishop Joseph of LA and the West publishes full service notes. You may wish to take a look at his wording for Canadian churches in his diocese.

Welcome to Canada!

We commemorate the Queen, generally speaking, though she isn't always mentioned by name. I can't say I've ever heard Parliament or the Governor General commemorated.

I'm not sure why my priest does it. I guess he just wants to cover all the bases. I don't think it's necessary. I also know he's pretty set in some of his ways, so I don't question him on it, and save my "helpful suggestions" for other things  Cheesy.

I've never heard the Queen of Australia, the governor-general or her Majesty's government commemorated or prayed for here in Australia.

I have, however, heard the President of Cyprus prayed for in a liturgical context.

Not sure how to feel about that.

hi, father michael, bless.
please pray for the queen, she needs it badly.
she is the head of a church which is falling apart, her husband is a senior freemason and her family are all damaged by having too much money and power.
thanks.

I have a recording from a ROCOR church in Australia that commemorates "Our Sovereign Lady the Queen, the parliaments and peoples of this Commonwealth". I also know that, in the not-too-distant past, it was a ROCOR rubric to commemorate her in churches in countries where Elizabeth II is head of State. The commemorations were during litanies, and at the Mnogaya Lyeta at the end of the DL.

Haha, I don't see anything wrong with praying for parliament, they certainly need it. It's just not something I've encountered before.
