Liturgy of the Hours

The Liturgy of the Hours is the prayer of the Mystical Body of Christ. In it, we pray in unity with all the faithful, the clergy, the hierarchy, the Pope, as well as with the suffering and triumphant Church in heaven, and with its Head, Jesus Christ. It is mostly made up of the Psalms and includes many other readings from the Scriptures.


Diocesan priests and men and women religious pray the Liturgy of the Hours each day. Vatican II wanted the Liturgy of the Hours made available to the faithful. Our students come together four times a day to pray the Liturgy of the Hours. They pray Morning Prayer before the early Mass at 7:30 AM. They pray Evening Prayer during the Holy Hour at 6:00 PM. Twice a day Night Prayer is prayed; this is at 9 PM and midnight. Praying the Liturgy of the Hours is one of the ways in which the Christendom community expresses its holiness.

Christendom College admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
