Liturgy of the Hours

“From ancient times the Church has had the custom of celebrating each day the liturgy of the hours. In this way the Church fulfills the Lord’s precept to pray without ceasing, at once offering its praise to God the Father and interceding for the salvation of the world.” Office of the Sacred Congregation for Divine Worship

The Apostles observed the Jewish custom of praying at the third, sixth and ninth hour and at midnight. What distinguishes this from other liturgies is that it is prayer that consecrates to God the whole cycle of the day and the night. It is principally a prayer of praise and petition. We invite you to help us continue in the tradition and experience the blessings of a more prayerful life.

We pray the Liturgy of the Hours every weekday morning and evening, Monday through Friday, at 6:30am (Lauds) and 6:30pm (Vespers) in the Adoration Chapel. Everyone is welcome to attend.

For more information or to sign up to lead morning or evening prayer one day per month at 6:30am or 6:30pm, contact the parish office at 281.497.1500 or
