For Roman Catholics, this hour is traditionally the first hour of prayer, although it is primarily observed by those in religious life. Then comes Tertia, the third hour, Sext, the sixth, and None, the ninth. The other hours do not make use of ordinals for their names. The term "hour" itself does not signify the length of pray but just which hour of the day the liturgical prayer is said... so Prima could be any morning time depending on the local custom... noted by the regular ringing of bells!
