The conference dial-in number is 914-226-2403.† After the welcome you will be placed into the conference, initially muted. You may mute and unmute by pressing 1. The assigned reader will need to unmute when he "stands" to read.

If you call in and no one begins within a few seconds after the bells sound, please take on the role of officiant. Those arriving later will join in with you. Please don't get discouraged if occasionally you are the only participant. We are building critical mass.

We are using the official Ordinariate Lectionary published by the Office of Worship of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter.

The Ordinariate Daily Office is awaiting approval from the Vatican. This webpage includes everything necessary to read the Office according to our best understanding of the proposal. Notes in red refer to differences from the Walsingham Publishing Morning and Evening Prayer Book with the Psalter and the 1928 Book of Common Prayer.

There is a direct link to the Psalms for each day in the Order of Service below.

The officiants and readers are John & Pam Covert, Brett Marlina, Elise Sweet, Nancy Gilpin, and Fr. Wootton. Additional officiants and readers are welcome.

The Order for Morning Prayer

Then shall follow a portion of the Psalms, as appointed.

Our local practice for the Psalms (a common one) is to recite them responsively by whole verse, with a distinct pause at the asterisk. The officiant recites the full first verse and the congregation follows with the second. The alternation continues in unbroken sequence through the entire selection and through the Gloria Patri, which is recited only at the end of the entire selection.


See below at the * for a note on our Psalm selection practice.

Then shall be read the First Lesson. And NOTE, That before every Lesson shall be said, A Reading from the Book of ____, or Here beginneth such a Chapter [or Verse of such a Chapter]. of such a Book; and after every Lesson, The Word of the Lord (to which the People respond Thanks be to God), or Here endeth the First [or the Second] Lesson (which has no response).

Benedictus.
St. Luke i. 68. (all verses)

BLESSED ✠ be the Lord God of Israel; * for he hath visited and redeemed his people;

And hath raised up a mighty salvation for us, * in the house of his servant David;

As he spake by the mouth of his holy Prophets, * which have been since the world began;

That we should be saved from our enemies, * and from the hand of all that hate us.

To perform the mercy promised to our forefathers, * and to remember his holy covenant;

To perform the oath which he sware to our forefather Abraham, * that he would give us;

That we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies * might serve him without fear;

In holiness and righteousness before him, * all the days of our life.

And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: * for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;

To give knowledge of salvation unto his people * for the remission of their sins,

Through the tender mercy of our God; * whereby the day-spring from on high hath visited us;

To give light to them that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death, * and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, * world without end. Amen.

* The Lectionary is that specified in the official Ordo for the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter. We generally use the 30-day traditional Psalm cycle from the Prayer Book, as permitted by the Ordinariate Lectionary, but we list for reference the alternate Psalm cycle in the Lectionary. We use the Psalms from the Lectionary on Christmas, Epiphany, The Purification, Ash Wednesday, The Annunciation, Good Friday, Easter Day, Ascension Day, Whitsunday, Trinity Sunday, The Transfiguration, All Saints, Thanksgiving Day, and the Solemnity of Title or of the Patron of the Place. We may also use the Psalm from the lectionary at other times, especially Saturdays, Sundays, or the 31st day of the month at the discretion of the Officiant.
