Compline

A calming deeply spirtual conclusion to your worship day…

From the ancient monastic practice of ending the day in prayer and praise of God, a Compline service is held every Sunday night at 8:00 p.m. This peaceful candlelit service features a small group of singers offering Gregorian chant and Renaissance polyphony.

The word “Compline” is from the same root as the word “complete.” As the last service of the day, it is the completion of our worship of God until the next morning, when we pray, “O Lord, open thou our lips.” In monastic communities, Compline is the beginning of silence lasting until the morning.compline
