Devotions Prior to 7:45am Weekday Masses

There will be a new format of devotions, as below:

  • 7:00am – Rosary
  • 7:15am – Invitatory and Morning Prayer, from the Church’s Divine Office, also known as the Liturgy of the Hours – which the Church encourages all laity to pray.
  • 7:35am – Sacred Silence
  • 7:45am – Daily Mass

In order to follow along in this Morning Prayer, in lieu of everyone having to bring their own books, we suggest, for all who are able, to download the free iBreviary app for iPhone or Android phones or iPads/tablets. Then those who are able to use this app can participate in responses. All others may still follow along prayerfully.

We are excited to begin this new initiative, and to join with the prayer of the Church!
