Fr. John Vass, Dean of the Atlantic States, sent a letter to our parish regarding the recent deanery gathering that we hosted:
Our parish is organizing a Psalter prayer group again for Great Lent. If you have not participated in the past, this is how it works. Each person is assigned a different kathisma to start. Each person reads one kathisma each day in sequential order, along with opening and closing prayers and prayers for the living and departed. Between the group, the entire Psalter is read each day.
If you are interested in participating, please see Yelena Vdov. You will need to provide her with your baptismal name and 10 names for the prayer list (living or departed).
