Yes, these readings are provided and prescribed by the Typikon. In the Typikon, only simple services may lack readings. At St. Tikhon's Monastery, at the direction of the Abbot, they omit most readings for saints of less than Polyeleos rank. Choir Cues provides them all, but we suggest you ask your Rector or Superior each week which readings he would like read. I do.
