The St. Thomas More House of Prayer is dedicated to the mission of praying and promoting the Liturgy of the Hours. Therefore, a day in the House is structured around the canonical “Hours” of prayer and all guests are expected to schedule their activities so as to be able to join us in common prayer at the appointed times.
The roots our apostolate began with one couple who opened their own home to other couples to pray the Liturgy of the Hours. Since the eve of the Jubilee Year 2000, it has expanded to include a retreat center dedicated to communal praying the Liturgy of the Hours as well as assisting priests, parishes, laypersons, and families to pray and share the official prayer of the Church.

Praising God with the Church in Heaven: “This liturgy of heaven was commonly foreseen by the prophets as a victory of day without night, of light without darkness: “The sun will no more be your light by day, and the brightens of the moon will not shine upon you, but the Lord will be your everlasting light” (Isaiah 60:19; see Rev 21)…

Praising God with the Church in Heaven 16. When the Church offers praise to God in the Liturgy or the Hours it unites itself with that hymn of praise which is sung in the heavenly places throughout all ages; it also receives a foretaste of the song of praise in heaven, described by John the Book of Revelation, the song that is sung without ceasing before the throne of God and of the Lamb.
