Online book(s) of Holy Week services
« on: April 10, 2012, 08:35:00 AM »
Hi guys.

I am after the Greek Text for the services of the Holy Week that I can print out so that I can follow along with the priest and chanters.

I have a book, but it quite old, and it keeps making references to other sections so I spend half the time flipping pages back and forth trying to find this hymn or that hymn, very annoying...

Google is not helping me....

Thanks.

You'll find them here:

If you belong to a Greek church, even better is to get yourself a copy of the book Holy Week - Easter, by Fr George Papadeas. It has every service from Palm Sunday evening to the Aghape Vespers of Easter Day, in both English and Greek.

If you belong to a Russian or other Slavic church, there will be some variation in the texts, though mostly for the Paschal services and for the Matins of Holy Saturday (Great Friday evening). The Slavic services are a little longer.

Thanks LBK but I'm after the Greek version. There are no English Orthodox parishes near me, as far as I know...

ematins.org has the texts in Greek and English and also provides music for the various hymns.
