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.
Times for the Liturgy of the Hours:
Office of Readings 5:30am – 6:00am*
Morning Prayer 8:00am – 8:20am
Mid-Morning 10:00am – 10:10am*
Mid-Day Prayer 12:00pm – 12:10pm
Mid-Afternoon 3:00pm – 3:10pm*

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.
