Morning Prayer

(Lauds) is part of the Liturgy of the Hours (also called the Divine Office). The Church strongly recommends that the laity recite daily at least part of the Liturgy of the Hours.

Since the 1970s, various Monaleen parishioners have been celebrating the Morning Prayer after the weekday Mass. A printed breviary or the smartphone “Universalis” app is used. The Psalms are at the core of this liturgy: the parish group also includes a number of locally-voiced intercessions in the Morning Prayer.

All are most welcome.
