***NOTE: Access the latest version of the Rookie Anglican Daily Office Booklet here.***


This post is a part of Rookie Anglican, a blog dedicated to Making Anglicanism Accessible.

In the interests of making the Anglican Church in North America’s Daily Office Lectionary, Morning Prayer, and Evening Prayer more accessible, I have been putting together Daily Office Booklets, which contain the basics of the Morning and Evening Prayer liturgies, as well as the references for all Scripture readings.

I recently made a bookley for Lent, which can be found here.

(Note: All ACNA liturgies can be found here.)

To review: the ancient Christian practice of beginning and ending each day with Bible reading and prayer is known as the “Daily Office” – as in the “daily service” or “daily duty” of Christians. It finds its roots in ancient Israel. God’s people were commanded to talk about God’s word “when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise” (Deut. 6:7). Our mornings and evenings are important to God.

I believe that, if you follow the Daily Office, you will notice a spiritual difference — in your own life, and in the life of your family!

This new booklet will take you through the Easter Season, right up until the Sunday after Pentecost, known as Trinity Sunday. You’ll notice some changes, such as the addition of an overview of the Church Year at the end, as well as some additional petitions (called Suffrages) included. Let me know what you think of these changes, please!

If there’s enough interest, I plan to create another booklet for the season after Pentecost, known as “Ordinary Time.”

    As my assigned daily scripture pages are somewhat frayed from use, I await eagerly to have both the psalms, morning, and evening scripture assignments published in the Daily Office Booklet. This would make it much more user friendly, rather than having a large binder for the reading assignments, and the smaller booklet of the daily office. This becomes a juggling act at times. Thank you for encouraging us in its use.

    Thank you so much for this resource! I think this addresses a primary need of the Church. The gift of praying the office is ours, this tool makes it easy to open the gift and benefit from it! Thank you again.
