A Rural Life Prayerbook

 
Published by NCRLC in 1956, the Rural Life Prayerbook offers traditional prayers of the Church and features blessings and prayers unique to the rural family. A sampling of prayers are found in some of the Menu items at right, and also at Seasonal Prayers on our website.
 
We invite you to visit the NCRLC online Store to purchase your own handy copy ($15).
This 400-plus handbook, along with original illustrations, is exceptional for its prayers and devotions throughout the ecclesiastical and calendar year.
