The following schedule maps out a typical day of a Choir monk having already completed his Novitiate. The daily schedule of a Novice or of a Theology student is somewhat different. That of a Brother, likewise, comports a few modifications. Also, for all the monks, the daily schedule or horarium for Sundays and important Feast days differs to some degree from that given here (Vespers, for example are at 5:00 p.m. instead of at 6:00 and are followed by Benediction).

The Divine Office, Holy Mass, Low Mass and Horarium are celebrated in Latin and sung in Gregorian Chant. With the approval of the Pontifical Commission 'Ecclesia Dei' and the consent of Bishop Edward J. Slattery of Tulsa, priests at Clear Creek celebrate according to the 1962 Roman Missal, with some minor modifications at High Mass. They also observe the complete Benedictine horarium.
