Canon XLII.  (Greek xiv.)

Concerning the not having feasts under any circumstances in churches.

That no bishops or clerics are to hold feasts in churches, unless perchance they are forced thereto by the necessity of hospitality as they pass by.  The people, too, as far as possible, are to be prohibited from attending such feasts.

Notes.

A cleric is not to feast in a church, unless perchance he is driven thereto by the necessity of hospitality.  This also is forbidden to the laity.
