Byzantine Catholic Prayer App now Available from Eastern Christian Publications

Fairfax, Virginia – A new and unique daily prayer app is now available from Eastern Christian Publications for iOS and Android devices. The app is titled “ECPubs” and is available for free download from either the Apple Store or Google Play. This is the only Byzantine Catholic app available in English with all the changeable prayer texts included for the Daily Office.

The app is updated daily with full texts of The Hours and Daily Vespers, and with all changeable parts included according to the Byzantine Typicon, or liturgical calendar. The main options in the app are:

• Prayer of the Day – icon and troparia (hymns) for the saint of the day
• Java with Jesus – daily reflections to read while you have your morning coffee
• Living Our Faith – thoughts for the day from several international writers
• The Hours – prayer text of the First, Third, Sixth and Ninth Hours
• Daily Vespers – prayer texts with changeable parts for a Reader Service and for Clergy
• Sunday Bulletin – image and commentary from the Sunday of the week
• Theosis Magazine – monthly spiritual essays in full color as an ebook
• Book of the Month – short excerpt from a featured book from ECP
• Intro to Prayer – an educational explanation of the Byzantine Daily Office
• Websites – links to various Eastern Christian websites

A free-will offering or monthly stipend is requested from those users who find the app useful and can afford to help support it financially.

ECP has published over 200 titles since starting in 1993 including 20 volumes of the Eastern Churches Journal, 6 years of Theosis magazine (a full-color monthly publication of spiritual essays and the Byzantine calendar), and color Sunday bulletin covers for over 250 parishes across the US and Canada. Book subjects cover the history, theology, spirituality, ecumenism, biographies, and liturgy of the Eastern Christian Churches, both Catholic and Orthodox.

To download and install the app, visit the Apple Store or Google Play and search for ECPubs. More details and online ordering for the email service and other books is available at http://ecpubs.com/product-category/subscription_electronic/ or by calling 703-691-8862.

I have now added Great Vespers for Sundays and Feast Days to this smartphone app, but because of the extra work and lack of revenue from other sources or donors, I'm asking a mere $2.00 per week/feast to access the files. You can find the "premium" button on the app menu named "Great Vespers."

We're also offering Great Vespers (in three files -- Propers, Reader Service for laity, Clergy) as a paid subscription email service -- $10.00 per month. You can subscribe on our website here:

For Android (as far as I know) there are also:
Orthodox Prayers and Services - also includes many Akathists translated in English
Orthodox Info
Orthodox Learning
Orthodox Facts
They are all free and the prayers and texts included are translated in English.
God bless!
