The Divine Office Ministry, a non-profit group that offers the “Liturgy of the Hours” collection of Roman Catholic prayers online, and via the iPhone, iPod, and iPad, in partnership with Surgeworks Inc., provides an iOS app that takes the full text and audio for the Liturgy of The Hours of the Roman Catholic Church to the iPhone and iPad, and now has released the Divine Office app version for Mac through the new Mac App Store.

The Divine Office Mac app automatically downloads (several days at a time) audio prayers for every hour and day of the year, including Solemnities, Feasts, and Memorials. The Mac version includes full text downloads in addition to audio and is available on Apple’s Mac App Store starting today.

Divine Office uses the current four-volume “Liturgy of the Hours,” the official prayer book of the Roman Catholic Church, however, it is also suitable for individuals following most Christian traditions.

“The Divine Office app emphasizes the life-changing experience of prayer. This Mac version, along with our website, podcast, iPhone and iPad apps, provide more choices to the praying community gathered around this project. We are excited about the new release and our ability to bring more prayer to more people on more devices,” says Dane Falkner, founder of the Divine Office Ministry.

Divine Office “Liturgy of the Hours” audio and full text is available free of charge at the divineoffice.org web site with a free companion audio podcast on iTunes. A small one-time download charge for the Divine Office Mac app supports the Ministry and development efforts. Other apps offered by the Ministry include:

  • Morning Prayer (Lauds) – audio Liturgy of the Hours for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch
  • Evening Prayer (Vespers) – audio Liturgy of the Hours for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch
  • Night Prayer (Compline) – audio Liturgy of the Hours for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch
  • Prayers – a reference of Catholic prayers in several languages for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

Divine Office apps bring together thousands of people each day into prayer with some days exceeding 30,000 audio prayer downloads by people joining together in prayer around the world. Over the past year over 150,000 unique visitors came to DivineOffice.org.

Attention Media: Free coupon codes are available upon request for review of the Divine Office app.

The Divine Office Ministry is a non-profit organization dedicated to gathering assets beneficial to the community of Christians praying the Liturgy of the Hours.
