Reading Prayers at Mid-Afternoon time
« on: December 02, 2013, 06:19:07 PM »
Hello, I've started reading the Service Prayers at Mid-Afternoon about 3:45 pm.

Can I read from the Service Books if there is no priest?...

If there is a priest why don't we get set-up right here?...

Almost any service can be done 'reader style'. You can find the texts here.

The Dynamic Horologion and Psalter is great for staying on top of the Hours while on the go.

If you suggest a site-wide cyber-service, though, that's a mess of time zones that can't be sorted.

You could pray Compline while Wesley does Ninth Hour.

Get enough folks involved, read the entire horologion simultaneously.

Do you say the Service Prayers vocally and out-loud? ...

Sure.

Don't worry about chanting or anything like that.
