December 24, 2019 What is a Typika?

A Typika service is an abbreviated Vespers with presanctified gifts. Attendance at a Typika service fulfills your Sunday obligation. Holy communion is distributed as part of this service.

Fr. Deacon Fred Abboud will celebrate Typikas in the event that Father Daniel Lenz is unavailable for a Divine Liturgy.


We celebrated Typikas on a weekly basis starting in October 2016 to August 2017 when Fr. Deacon George Butterfield was living in Omaha. Following his move to Oklahoma, weekly Typikas were stopped and replaced with monthly Divine Liturgies in Omaha/Ralston and Lincoln. 

We resumed Typikas on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2019 at St. Gerald Chapel in Ralston. Fr. Deacon Fred Abboud is celebrating Typikas when he is available. We currently do not have a regular schedule for Typikas. Typikas are announced through our omahalincolnbyzantine mailing list and are added to the Liturgy Schedule on this web site. 

We currently do not have any Typikas scheduled for St. George in Lincoln.

Feel free to contact me if you want to be added to the omahalincolnbyzantine mailing list.
