Liturgy of the Hours

blankAre you interested in learning to pray the Liturgy of the Hours? Or have you begun to pray it, but find yourself distracted by too many pages to flip?

“How to Pray the Liturgy of the Hours” is an introduction to this ancient prayer form, for those who are totally new to it, and for those who have begun but aren’t comfortable with it yet.

Along with a presentation, we will have a “hands-on” session with a variety of Office books, so if you have begun to pray the Liturgy of the Hours, have your books handy.  (And if you haven’t purchased books yet, you might find which styles appeal to you.)

Same Presentation in two formats:
January 14  3:30 p.m. at the Benedictine Peace Center
OR
January 17, 7:00 p.m. on Zoom
