St Benedict Week - Divine Office
The Divine Office, also known as the Liturgy of Hours, is the prayer of the Church, praising and giving glory to God throughout the day. In his Rule, St Benedict calls it the work of God, Opus Dei, and he insists that nothing is to be preferred to it. In a monastery and, indeed, for any person or community which prays the Divine Office, it forms the rhythm that guides us through the day and helps turn our hearts to the Lord.
We've included details for joining Evening Prayer, Vespers, online and in person at different monasteries and with the Lay Community of St Benedict. If you would like to join at other hours of the day or if you would like to find out more, please follow the links. We will also be including links to other monasteries which do not stream online.
