Worship in the Domestic Church
Worship in the traditional Orthodox home general centers around the [[Icon corner]] (sometimes called a "home altar"), which is typically placed in a prominent location in the living room or dining room of the home. This customarily consists of one or more icons and often a shelf or table on which are placed various devotional items.
It is here that the Orthodox family comes together for prayer. Several Orthodox prayer books and devotional manuals are available which provide the customary prayers. These are typically based upon the Hours that are observed in monastic institutions, simplified for use by the family. (See the article on [[Icon corner]]s; see also [[Icons and Home Items]] in the Marketplace.)
