A Guide to Church Etiquette

How to Show Proper Respect and Reverence in Church

 

The booklet, published by the Department of Marriage and Parish Family Ministry of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America in conjunction with Conciliar Media Ministries, answers the question, "Am I treating the church, my time there, and my fellow worshipping Christians with the proper respect during my time at church?"

It is a booklet created for our own personal reflection, not as a means of judging others.   Take a look and see it it answers some of your questions.
