Divine Office New Website Design

Please Note

This is the Liturgy of the Hours for December 31. Your local date is .

Dear Community,

At the start of the New Year, our gift to you is a new website design with a different architecture. We meant it to be fresh and beautiful, to promote our members’ interactions with one another and to encourage and sustain our need to immerse in prayer away from daily distractions.

We have had the old website for 14 years and while some of you might have been very comfortable using it, we are sure the need for a change will become obvious once you’ll get to know the new design and what it has to offer.

The new website design was announced a few weeks back and some of you got to test it and offer valuable feedback on the experience. We thank you all for your effort!

We take this opportunity to guide you briefly through the key changes and the new features:

  • We added to the website the 3D Spinning Globe, showing how many people around the world are praying with you, this used to be an exclusive feature of the Divine Office app.
  • We worked on and improved the Comment and the Prayer Request section by adding the option to post short Intercessory Prayers and Personal Reflections directly below each prayer for the day.
  • We also added a Community Forum, it can be used to share your experience, seek for spiritual support or ask questions about our Catholic faith to the other members.
  • My Profile page was augmented to contain your personal activity on the website, either prayers or discussion topics. And if you are a Contributor to our work, you’ll also have access to your contribution records along with the option to update the contribution.
  • We added more features that before were only available in our apps: you can now switch the website colour scheme (dark/light), increase the font size, change the audio playback speed, and access a Full-Screen Prayer Room — completely focused on praying the Liturgy of the Hours.

Here is a video guide, an Introduction to the Divine Office New Design:

Remember you can write to [email protected] if you have questions or need guidance or while on the website, use the support button on the bottom-right of your screen.

The website redesign was made possible by the constant and generous support of our contributors and was months in the making. We are grateful and hope you’ll receive the change with joy and spread the news in your community. By doing so you’ll be contributing to our mission of promoting the ancient tradition of praying the Liturgy of the Hours.

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

– Divine Office Team

    Sorry to say, I’ve been gone for awhile. This appears to be hard to use as compared to what I was used to. I will keep trying…..maybe it will get better. This is still better than using the 4 books. And I love the recitations and songs.

    I am returning to the Divine Office, I was surprised at the new look! I am going to look forward to coming here every Day. This site looks beautiful! I want to learn how best to use it. My goal is to start with the Morning Prayer every day for the next month. Please pray for me. Thank you… John

    It took some time to get used to the new website. I was not aware until I signed on one day and was taken by surprise. I am becoming familiar with it and hopefully benefiting from all the advantages of the website has to offer.

Pray anywhere
I have prayed the Divine Office for many years. [...] When I discovered this app, all of my concerns of ribbon placement were gone. Having the Divine Office on my phone is absolutely the best thing ever! The sense of community is so wonderful as I see how many others are praying at the same time as myself. [...] Now I don’t need to turn a lamp on as I use to when I used the Office printed volumes. It is such a blessing to have the Divine Office in my pocket. Many times I’ve been sitting in a doctor’s waiting room at the time of Mid Morning prayer. It is so calming of any worries to pull out my phone, open the app, and be able to connect with Our Lord at those times I need Him most. I don’t use the audio version much but the few times I’ve traveled, it is so comforting to not have to skip the Office in order to keep my hands on the steering wheel and my eyes in the road. I recommend this app to friends all the time, especially to those who’d like to pray the Office but feel intimidated by the size of the printed version and getting the ribbons placed properly. Thank you for developing this app. It is my constant companion.

Super helpful
I have only been introduced to the divine office prayers two times before I downloaded this app. It is laid out in a way that is very easy to understand, and there is an audio option that will say all of the prayers. There is an option to set reminders throughout the day. I got this because, I didn’t really know how to say the divine office, and I didn’t know what prayer books I needed to purchase to begin. During the shutting down of churches for covid :( this has been a wonderful resource. One cool feature is that you can tap on the “in prayer” link and see little specks of light around the globe lighting up in the area that someone else is praying. It’s so cool to see everyone praying with you and is a powerful reminder that we are all connected and unified in Christ’s mystical body.

Praying with the whole Church
I love this app! Since it is now free and no longer for sale, I made sure to donate the price of buying it, and then some. I have loved the Liturgy of the Hours for 25 years. But I always felt alone when I prayed it. With this app, I am connected to others! I use it in conjunction with my printed Christian Prayer volume. On other days, I cannot get to my book but with the app, I always have the prayers available. I have the printed calendar with my book, but I actually rely on this more for placing my ribbons. The audio is wonderful!! I often read out loud with it. I love that I can change the speed of the audio! I have found that 1.3 is good for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this app. Thank you for still supporting it. Thank you for updating the “one God,” to just “God” change in the prayers. My book still throws me off but your app is right! Highly recommend this. Many friends have it. THANK YOU!!
