Re: Format for Akathists in church
- Dear Nectarios,
Perhaps an additional way, for example, as part of the "Pravila"
:Rule for Holy Communion, is to make the Three Canons and
Akathist fit into Small Compline, . . . starting with, I believe, Ninth
hour. In our parish we do this with Akathist, pretty much, every
Friday evening ( so that makes it, liturgically speaking, Saturday.)
Otherwise there'd be no time, no attendees ( "what , Bat-ooshka ,
give up my Saturday afternoon?" ), and fewer folks prepared for
Holy Communion. Even though very few show up, my family and
the parish have come to expect and even look forward to the
Friday evening "Pravila". Leaving the prep. for Communion
Canon and Prayers for the individual to complete sometime
before Sunday's Divine Liturgy . Of course, such an ekonomia
might be considered questionable. I expect clearence from
above is required ( spir.father, bishop).
