akathists during the Great Lent

Question: Is it true that it is not allowed to read akathists during the Great Lent?

Answer: According to the rubrics, the services during the Great Lent are special. However, we do serve several akathists in our Convent during the Great Lent. We read akathists to the Pantanassa icon of the Mother of God because there are so many ill people who need prayer, especially during the Lent. It is not a solemn or festive prayer. It is a call for help. We also read an akathist to the Inexhaustible Chalice icon of the Mother of God.  If your heart wants to read an akathist at home, if you find it useful, you can read it but be watchful.
