Terminology

Divine Liturgy (Sveta liturgija) is the primary worship service of the Church. The most commonly celebrated forms of the Divine Liturgy are the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (Liturgija Sv. Jovana Zlatousta), the Liturgy of St. Basil, and the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts. The Divine Liturgy is a eucharistic service. It contains two parts: the Liturgy of the Catechumens sometimes called the Liturgy of the Word, at which the Scriptures are proclaimed and expounded; and the Liturgy of the Faithful, sometimes called the Liturgy of the Eucharist, in which the gifts of bread and wine are offered and consecrated.

Catechumens (Serbian: oglaseni) are people who are studying to become Christians. They are allowed to participate in Liturgy of the Word, but have to leave the church before the Liturgy of the Eucharist starts.

Prosphora (Serbian: nafora) – the bread that is used for the Eucharist.

Sticharion (robe), epitrachelion (stole), girdle, epimanica (cuff) and phelonion (the outer cape) – parts of the priest’s and deacon’s vestment.
