Ordo for October 2011


Herewith the Benedictine Ordo according to the general calendar for the Order, and rubrics approved in 1961/2, with page references to the Monastic Diurnal (MD) published by Farnborough Abbey, 2004.

Please let me know if you find any errors, or have any questions on the Ordo.

You will of course need to add in any local feasts celebrated in your monastery, parish, diocese and country. In particular, this should include (where they have been appointed):

• the principal patron of your country, region or province as a Class I;
• the principal patron of your diocese or territory;
• the anniversary of the dedication of the Cathedral of your diocese;
• the patron of your town or city;
• the anniversary of the dedication of your church;
• the titular feast of your church;
• the patron saint of your congregation or monastery (if you are an oblate);
• the feast of the monasteries founder (if canonised or beatified); and
• any saints specified in the calendar of your monastery's congregation.

Note that REF=Roman Extraordinary Form calendar.

October is 'time throughout the year'; note however that the Sunday Lauds hymn changes to Aeterne Rerum Conditor, MD 53.
