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.

Father, for your glory and our salvation you appointed Jesus Christ eternal High Priest. May the people he gained for you by his blood come to share in the power of his cross and resurrection by celebrating his memorial in the Eucharist, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, on God, for ever and ever. (Evening Prayer for Holy Thursday)
