The Anglican Cycle of Prayer 2018
Daily Worship App
Grow in relationship with God through daily prayer. Read and meditate on Scripture. Prepare services with ease. All with the help of Daily Worship from the Church of Ireland Lectionary.
The Church of Ireland’s Daily Worship app brings the content of the Book of Common Prayer into the smartphone era by presenting its content in one place, including Bible readings and liturgies for each day of the year. The app covers five services – Daily Prayer (Morning), Daily Prayer (Evening), A Late Evening Office, Compline, and Holy Communion – and draws on the rich liturgical resources of the Church of Ireland.

Retreat and Contemplative Prayer
Retreat is an opportunity to withdraw from all the cares and pressures of the world to a quiet place. Some of the religious orders are very pleased for their houses to be used for personal retreats by arrangement (for example the Benedictine Monks in Rostrevor with whom the Diocese of Down and Dromore has a very warm relationship).
