During the period between the Ascension Feast and the Pentecost Feast, is there a procession done every day in the sanctuary only or is it only the Sunday between the feasts according to the Holy Synods’ precedence?

There was a recommendation from the Holy Synod to do a procession every day around the altar inside the sanctuary only but the traditional rite is to do a full procession on the sixth Sunday after the Praxis and on Pentecost during Matins, but no processions on the other days.

The procession from Ascension to Pentecost is done with the two icons of the Resurrection and Ascension but on Pentecost by the Resurrection icon only.
