Special Liturgies

In addition to holidays and the seasons of the church year, the Community’s liturgical calendar celebrates the lives of seventy-two saints in Feast Day Liturgy of the Hours services. As an expression of its ecumenical character, the Community has drawn all but one of those saints from the first ten centuries of the church’s history, that is, before 1054, the date that formalized what is known as the East-West or Great Schism, dividing the church over theological, ecclesiastical, and political lines into what became the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church.
