ARRANGED BY THE
RT. REV. HENRY U. ONDERDONK, D.D.
ASSISTANT BISHOP OF THE PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL CHURCH IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA.
PUBLISHED BY JOHN C. PECHIN,
In this manual, there are twelve Offices of family devotion. Eight of them are compiled from the Liturgy and other services of the Protestant Episcopal Church; each Collect or Prayer being generally entire ; and concise adaptations or insertions being made in some of them. The other four are the two Forms, to be used in Families, set forth in the Prayer-book, and the same somewhat abridged. Three Occasional Prayers, and an Occasional Thanksgiving, are added.
A chapter, or part of a chapter, from the New Testament, or the Old, should be read before these Offices are used.
