Diocesan Ordo

Diocesan Ordo

The Diocesan Ordo is the detailed liturgical calendar for each liturgical year, starting on 1st Vespers of the 1st Sunday of Advent (i.e. the evening preceding) and continuing to Saturday of the last week of Ordinary Time in the following liturgical year. It tells clergy and laity what prayers, readings and commemorations take place on each day, and includes such details as anniversaries of deceased clergy, the founding of parishes, and special collections through the year.


For any enquiries or to order an Ordo, please phone the Department of Administration on 023 92 825430.
