His Eminence Archbishop Antony – president of the Consistory of the UOC of the USA and ex-officio member of the Commission – also participated in the meetings offering his advice and expertise as the members of the Commission reflected upon the three-volume work, which is to be released to public in the first part of 2011.
The members of the Commission worked daily at the Consistory offices of the Church and attended daily liturgical services at St. Sophia Ukrainian Orthodox Theological Seminary. The Liturgical Commission will release the following bi-lingual liturgical service books once they are approved and blessed by the UOC Council of Bishops:
Volume 1: Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom and St. Basil the Great.
Volume 2: Liturgy of Presanctified Gifts.
Volume 3: Vespers and Matins.
Holy Hours and Typica, Funeral Books and the Book of Needs are in a process of being translated and developed.
The next meeting of the Commission is scheduled for the second part of summer of this year.
