I’m writing to see if anyone out there can be a tremendous blessing to us by saving us lots of work.

We are finally starting some regular services in the English language here in Perth, Australia. But the Liturgy will be on a Saturday, not Sunday for the time being, and the Vespers therefore on Friday.

Does anybody know where we can get the FULL RANGE of Orthodox services electronically, either on the Internet or on CD-ROM? In English. I know of some wonderful websites that would be perfect if we were operating on a Sunday, but that’s not an option at the moment. So it’s baby steps for us. And, apart from our wonderful priest, everybody else involved is an enthusiastic newbie. In the English language, at least, we’re almost in a mission situation. So being able to print off a booklet week by week with the Vespers and Orthros services in it (rather than flicking between four books) would be wonderful.


Can anybody point us in the right direction?

Thank you!

Gary Dixon


Here are the sites that I know of that are great for Sundays, but not for us right now:

http://saintjonah.org/services/
www.newbyz.org

Dear Gary,
Christ is Risen!

Some useful websites:
http://www.st-sergiu.../services8.html (Full English Menaion)
http://www.archdioce...hosComplete.pdf (Full English Octoechos)
http://orthodoxengland.org.uk/zot.htm (Mike Asser's Translation of the Greek Orthodox Old Testament for any O.T. Vespers readings)
http://www.ocf.org/O...n/triodion.html (English Triodion, not that you shall need it any-time soon.)
http://oca.org/liturgics/service-texts (Maybe useful for when feast days fall upon Saturday)

In the Risen Christ.
Daniel,
