  1. You might be interested to know that St. Ignatius of Antioch Church in Manhattan sings the Great Litany in procession on the Sundays in Lent except on the Rose (Fourth) Sunday.

    Also, I think there was confusion in the conflation of reception of Holy Communion and celebration of the Eucharist. In the practice of the Orthodox Church, the celebration of the Eucharist is considered inappropriate on the fasting weekdays of Lent but Holy Communion is given in the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts on Wednesday and Friday each week, as well as on the Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday of Holy Week; there is no Holy Communion—not even the Presanctified—on Good Friday.
