It is the tradition of St. Elias Parish to use a different chant during Pylypivka/ Advent. We do this to mark the season not only with prayer, fasting and almsgiving, but also in the way we sing at Divine Services. This can be confusing and the question arises, is this necessary? The answer, obviously, is, no. We could sing the same way every Sunday, but this would be like Ukrainian dancers wearing the same costume for the entire evening's performance. Ukraine has a rich tradition of different regional liturgical chants, among them Kyivan, Galician and Carpathian. Here at st. Elias, until the Nativity of Christ, elements of the Carpathian. It will grow on you.... (Video by Maria-Lynn Turi)

The Resurrectional Third Antiphon

Reader: Come, let us sing joyfully to the Lord, let us acclaim God, our Saviour.

All: Son of God, risen from the dead, save us who sing to You: Alleluia.

Reader: Let us come before His face with praise, and acclaim Him in psalms.

All: Son of God, risen from the dead, save us who sing to You: Alleluia.

Reader: For God is the great Lord and the great king over all the earth.

All: Son of God, risen from the dead, save us who sing to You: Alleluia.


Prayer of the Entrance:

Priest: Lord God our Master, Who established in heaven the ranks and armies of angels and archangels for the service of Your glory, grant that as we make our entrance, the holy angels may enter too, serving with us and joining in the praise of Your goodness. For all glory, honour and worship befit You, +Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and for ever and ever. Amen.

Deacon: Master, bless the holy entrance.

Priest: +Blessed be the entrance of Your saints, always, now and for ever and ever.

Deacon: Amen.
Wisdom! Stand aright!

All: Come, let us worship and fall down before Christ. Son of God, risen from the dead, save us who sing to You: Alleluia.
