Dipytuch (diptichon, Touptikon)
The list of names of departed Christians for whom special prayers are offered.

We love our deceased fathers and brothers, that's why we ask God to have mercy upon them; and they on their turn pray on our behalf.

Praying "Dipytuch" takes place after the assembly, in the liturgy of Eucharist (Mass).
