While the Liturgy at our Greek parish is about 60/40 English, Orthos is more Greek than English. It may be hard to follow along in a Matins booklet, if the Parish provides the booklets. If you notice the places where the Priest speaks in the Matins booklet, this can help you follow along. When you first enter the church, in the Narthex, there are usually candles for purchase to light in the candle "sand box". These are usually the slender taper style candles and our parish requests a dollar for each of these candle. Visitors who do not venerate the Icon nearby the sand boxes, often still light a candle. Also, remember the smoke from the incense can be heavy at times during the services at times.
