The Minor Orders
« on: January 19, 2003, 10:05:48 PM »
There is a plethora of good reading out there on the major orders, but is there any good online reading about the minor orders (like what being a Reader or Subdeacon entails, applicable canons, etc.)?

Thanks,

Nektarios

Actually, Nektarios, there *is* a site online for Orthodox Readers and for those interested in what is entailed for those tonsured to this "minor" order.  Unfortunately, I cannot locate the link at the moment, but one of the tonsured Orthodox readers on this forum may have it at hand.

There is a Yahoo egroup for Readers.

www.egroups.com/group/orthodox-readers.

And one for readers and sub-deacons which seems rather small.
