Compline

Wednesdays at 9:15pm

Upcoming Dates: November 17, December 15

Additional dates to be announced.

Stemming from monastic practice, Compline is the last service of the day before bedtime. From the same root as the word “complete,” Compline in the strict sense marks the beginning of a time of silence—from the end of the service lasting until the morning. This brief and beautiful service is set in a darkened church and sung by a small men’s choir. Remain as long as you wish after the service in this quiet space, departing in silence.

Evensong

Sundays at 5:00pm

Upcoming Dates: February 13, March 13, and May 8

Choral Evensong has been sung daily in the Anglican Church since the 16th century throughout the world. At Evensong, choral music and chant illuminates biblical texts to allow a time of stillness, meditation, and prayer.
