Coming from the Latin completorium, from which we have our word “complete,” This meditative service is designed as the concluding prayer of our day. Lasting a little less than 30 minutes and in our candlelit church, this liturgy centers around the Psalms, Scripture, and prayers taken from Scripture (including the Nunc Dimittis – the Song of Simeon). Unaccompanied music by the Compline Choir of Gregorian chant and Renaissance polyphony - no sermon or Holy Eucharist. The particular liturgical aesthetic of our Compline is aimed at concluding our weekend with reflection, calm, and peace. Compline is an ideal setting for those who may not regularly attend church.Read More »
