"Likewise deacons must be reverent, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy for money, holding the mystery of the faith with a pure conscience. But let these also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons, being found blameless. Likewise, their wives must be reverent, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things. Let deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a good standing and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus."
(1 Timothy 3:8-13)

Standardized Congregation Responses
Under the auspices of His Eminence Bishop Serapion, and their Graces Bishop Youssef, Bishop David, Bishop Mina, and others, a committee of deacons was formed to research and record standardized congregational responses for the Liturgy of St. Basil. The purpose of these standard responses is to unify congregational responses throughout North America and make it easier for visitors to pray in any parish.
