What if I am doing Typika at home with just my family, and so there is no Temple to have a patron for?


You have several options.  You can use the patron of the parish you usually attend, when you are able to.  You can use your own patron, or the patron of the head of your house.  You can also choose a patron for your family.  In any case set aside a family prayer corner, or a whole room, if you can, and dedicate it to the patron of your choosing.
