Welcome! The Online Daily Office exists to give busy people a way to particpate in Morning and Evening Prayer including the readings and psalms for each day (along with a bit of music!). You will also find Noonday Prayer, Compline, and Devotions for Individuals and Families here. These rites are based on The Book of Common Prayer.

The Online Daily Office is a ministry of The Mission of St. Clare*. The Mission's goal is to introduce prayer and meditation to people who have never experienced them, and to support people who enjoy the benefits of prayer and meditation but who find difficulty in putting aside time for this practice.

As well as offering the Online Daily Office through the Internet, The Mission of St. Clare hopes to establish tiny meditation spaces within office complexes and shopping areas.

We hope that you will enjoy visiting this website and praying with us.

You are encouraged to send comments and to tell us about anything that needs correcting (we're sure you'll find something that needs correcting!).
