      Dear Maria,
      No Typikon or other service book (in my recollection) assigns the prokeimenon
      at any service to the priest or deacon. It is the common Russian usage to
      have the deacon or the priest do the prokeimenon at Vespers & Matins. BUT it is
      usual to have the reader of the OT lessons do the prokeimena at the
      Vespers/Presanctified just as at the Divine Liturgy. The reader does the prokeimena
      from the same place as the lessons.
