Philippine mission December 20, 2019
This week, Orthodox choirs and clergy in the Philippines gratefully received liturgical calendars donated by St. Innocent Press!
Philippine mission communities are learning to serve Vespers and the Vigil, in addition to the Hours and either Divine Liturgy or Typika on feasts and Sundays. These liturgical calendars have been invaluable for us. Many of our clergy and communities do not have reliable access to the Internet, nor computers and printers, so for them it is not effective to email the order of service each week. Having the details for each service laid out well in advance guides the clergy and choirs – and also the translators who are working continually to provide texts in Cebuano and Tagalog for upcoming services. Many thanks to the brothers and sisters at St. Innocent Press!
