Friends,

I have a question from my wife.  Whenever we visit an Antiochian Orthodox parish, the clergy raise their arms during the Cherubic Hymn, and--turning together--face south, north, and east (I am not certain in which order...). I believe that this is while they read the hymn and the choir is singing.  Why do they face these different directions together?  Thanks!
