Universalis provides the Office of Readings daily.

This site does all the calendar calculations for you, and presents you with the psalms and readings for each hour of today, every day. For instructions, please see the links at the top of this page.

As the third millennium approaches, it becomes more important than ever that we should obey the Lord's command and pray without ceasing, to sanctify the coming millennium, the world, and ourselves. The Universalis Web site has been created, to give us all, wherever we are, and whatever the time, the chance to participate in the Church's universal prayer. One click - one bookmark - and we can pause for a moment in our busy lives and contemplate what really matters.

This site uses the version of the Liturgy of the Hours given in the Roman Breviary - but the Divine Office is for all Christians and not just Catholics. Christians of many other denominations, including Anglicans, Methodists, and Baptists, are using this site on a regular basis.

CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH provides the definitive teachings of the Church.


The Baltimore Catechism is a timeless classic.  The only changes that have been made in the Church, since it was written, are those in the area of discipline.  No changes have been made in the area of doctrine and morality.  The same Faith that was believed when the Baltimore Catechism was written, is the same Faith that is believed today.

This question and answer format catechism will be useful to anyone who wants to better know the Faith of the Catholic Church.

The General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM) is a sure norm for liturgy.

The Official Homepage of the Association for Catechumenal Ministry is great for RCIA stuff.
