Daily Office and Christian Formation Resources

The Episcopal Church has had a long history of praying the daily offices of morning, noon, evening, and compline. Below are a few resources from the diocesan house and others for praying the offices on your own, with a group, or with your parish.

  • Online Resources

    Mission St. Clare – Mission St. Clare has long been a resource for those praying the Daily Office. Their site is available in both English and Spanish.

    The Brotherhood of St. Gregory – The Brotherhood of St. Gregory offers an excellent online and app based daily office platform.

    BCPOnline – The online version of the BCP is a helpful resource in a pinch when a Book of Common Prayer is not available. It is available in a Spanish PDF here.

    Lectionary Page – This online resource for the lectionary readings is helpful when determining the readings for Sundays, feast days, and major saints days.

    St. Bede’s Breviary

    Oremus – Daily prayer, liturgy, hymns (audio) and prayer resources. Includes calendar of saints, lectionary, searchable Bible, and prayer requests.

    Forward Movement Daily Prayer – Forward Movement publishes small devotional booklets which some churches offer to their members. They contain a daily scripture text, a short meditation on that reading, a question to ponder, and three scripture readings. This online site provides these same daily selections for people to read and ponder online.

    The Anglican Cycle of Prayer (ACP) web site includes a one-reading-per-day lectionary, comprised of a psalm and Bible verses. All are invited to use this lectionary as part of their daily prayer and worship.

    Daily Prayer for All Seasons – Developed by the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music, the prayers in Daily Prayer for All Seasons are presented according to liturgical season beginning with Advent and progressing through Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Holy Week, and Easter. In addition, two sections are offered for Ordinary Time: Creation and Rest. The book also includes explanatory pages of how to best utilize the prayers.

  • Episcopal Relief and Development - Connections Page

    Episcopal Relief and Development has an excellent page on connecting in a time of an epidemic.

Churches Streaming Online

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we listed various parishes with online streaming. However, as we enter an in-between season, parishes have opted to continue streaming, create hybrid experiences, or return to in-person worship. We invite you to reach out to the parish of your interest, subscribe to their newsletters, and check out what they are currently offering for worship.

As communities tackle various challenges, whether medical, weather, or even infrastructure, we hope to provide you with the means of maintaining the bond of community whilst remaining at home or away from East Tennessee. Below are a few collections of resources to help you worship either on your own at home or with particular parishes in our diocese.
