Let me preface this by asking you to forgive my ignorance of the subject and probably butchered use of terminology. I’m interested in Eastern spirituality, and I want to attend a Liturgy to see what it’s like. Unfortunately, I’m clueless as to what to expect. I found a nearby Eastern parish, and would like to attend soon, so if someone could give me a summary of what to expect, that would be great.
Also, I have a few specific questions:
I know that in the Latin rite there are often cards and the like with the responses on them-would there be something similiar at an Eastern parish?
Also, I’m a somewhat recent convert and unable to recieve the Eucharist, but I was validly Baptized, so is there anything else I’m not allowed to do during the Liturgy?
Since I’m not allowed to recieve, do I just stand in my pew (or lack thereof) when it’s time for Holy Communion?
