Sacraments & Worship

Liturgy, especially the Sunday Eucharistic celebration, is the source and summit of Christian life. Through sacramental worship, we celebrate our faith and we draw strength from God's grace to live our faith actively in the world.

Liturgy of the Hours

The Liturgy of the Hours (also known as the Divine Office or Breviary) is the richest single prayer resource of the Christian Church. It provides prayers, psalms and meditation for various times of the day to sanctify it. It has existed from the earliest times, to fulfill the Lord's command to pray without ceasing. Liturgy of the Hours, as a form of prayer, is not reserved exclusively for professed religious, but for all Christian believers.
