THE DIVINE OFFICE

CONNOR HEY who starts his training for the Sacred Priesthood in September, has been presented with a three-volume set of the Divine Office from the parish. The Divine Office contains the prayers prayed by priests, religious and Church students everyday throughout the Universal Church, i.e. Morning Prayer, Midday Prayer, Evening Prayer, Night Prayer and Office of Readings. I asked him to remember the parishioners of Ss Aidan & Oswald’s every time he uses these volumes.

 

  • I am most grateful to Virginia Robinson for her time and for exercising her calligraphical skill in writing an inscription in the front of each volume.
  • Connor thanks the parishioners of Ss Aidan & Oswald’s for their thoughtfulness and generosity in presenting him with the Divine Office and he assures me that he will remember us every time he uses it
