Pray the Liturgy of the Hours

Learn how to pray the official prayer of the Church, the Liturgy of the Hours

The St. Thomas More House of Prayer is a Catholic retreat center, approved by the Diocese of Erie, with the mission of praying and promoting the Liturgy of the Hours.

Our goal at the Saint Thomas More House of Prayer is to provide a quiet atmosphere for prayer, in particular to pray and teach the public, communal prayer of the Catholic Church: the Liturgy of the Hours. To that end, the St. Thomas More House of Prayer is open to the public from 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and can be booked by individuals or groups for retreats of any length.

Any individual or group in need of a quiet place to stay and willing to participate in praying the Liturgy of the Hours is most welcome.

About Us

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)
