How to read Morning and Evening Prayer by Father Ponec

While we all practice social distancing to control the spread of Covid-19, we can use our Book of Common Prayer to continue worship by reading Morning and Evening Prayer.

Not sure where to start? Here is a guide written by Father Ponec for a parishoner who inquired about how to read MP (Morning Prayer) or EP (Evening Prayer). While the readings were specific to the day in question, you can easily find the proper readings and collect for the day by checking the “Psalms and Lessons for the Christian Year” in the beginning of the BCP, and the “Collects, Epistles and Gospels” that follow the Order for Holy Communion.
