Office Book for Priest & Deacon

Hieratikon Office Book for Priest & Deacon
  • Description
  • Reviews

The Hieratikon from St. Tikhon’s Monastery Press contains Vespers, Compline, Midnight Office, Matins, and the Hours, given in all their forms: Sunday, festal, daily, Lenten, for the Departed, and Paschal; Magnifications and Matins Prokimena; Dismissals; Monthly calendar; Censing patterns.

All the texts needed by priest and deacon are provided, put in the context of a brief account of the singers’ and readers’ parts of the service, so that the clergy can use this book to follow along as a service is progressing.

The different variations of each service used throughout the year (festal, daily, Lenten, etc.) are each laid out in their own section, so there is little confusion while following the order of service. To keep the book compact, not every litany and prayer is printed in full in each section, but a page cross reference is always provided.

The Hieratikon’s rubrics were carefully written to provide clear and detailed, but succinct, descriptions of the Russian liturgical practice inherited by the O.C.A. from her mother Church.


The Hieratikon uses translations already well-known in the OCA and the wider Orthodox community in America, using the traditional style of liturgical English, and with the texts carefully compared to Greek and Slavonic for accuracy.
