Annual Report January 2013

By Mark Olson

Currently we have 16 readers in rotation with two alternates for emergencies. If you would like to be a reader see me for training. This last year we added to our readers responsibilities by chanting of the third hour prior to the Liturgy on days that the reader is assigned to read. This worked well, but often the readers because of other commitments aren't able to arrive 15 minutes early. This year I'm going to try to recruit a wider group (volunteers and youth) to read the third hour prior to Divine Liturgy. Matins was moved to 8:15 to give time for this new liturgical element this worked well as well as giving some time between services in case the Matins is longer than ordinary or if there is a Memorial to be chanted. Another possibility for the youth or other volunteers is to chant "the prayers after communion" after liturgy if there is a desire to chant but remains difficult to get the whole family to come at 9:15 for one family member to chant. Looking forward I'd like to move some of our youth to regular reader rotation if they get enough experience chanting Third hour or the after service prayers.
