The service to St. John (including the akathist) was translated by Reader Isaac E. Lambertsen from the Church Slavonic text. The akathist to St. John was orginally compiled in English by Hieromonk Seraphim (Rose), translated into Church Slavonic, edited and revised by Archbishop Alypy of Chicago and subsequently approved for liturgical use by the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. The present English text incorporated both Fr. Seraphim's original and Reader Isaac Lambertsen's translation.
