DAILY VESPERS – Daily Vespers is an abbreviated form of Great Vespers and is served on any day that Great Vespers is not appointed. Generally, Daily Vespers is served by a priest alone without the assistance of a deacon, although there is some variation in this practice. At Daily Vespers, the Small Entrance is usually omitted; there are fewer stichera inserted in Lord, I have cried unto Thee; and the Ektenia following the prokeimenon is abbreviated and moved to follow the apolytikion. The service ends with the Little Dismissal.
