» Compline

Compline services are held at 7:00 pm in the choir stalls every Thursday from September through the end of May (except for Thanksgiving and Maundy Thursday).

Compline is the last of the daily offices. In keeping with the earliest practices of the monastic communities, Compline is offered by candlelight at a time when the work of the day is finished and the quietness of evening begins to settle over the hearts and minds of those gathered in prayer.  This is a short service of ancient prayers, psalms, chanting, and mystery. Incense will be present at this service, as well as the Holy Spirit. All are welcome.

A generous gift from John Graham provided the seed money to begin offering Compline as a weekly service. To sustain it on an ongoing basis, the fund will need your continued financial support. If you would like to make a donation to the John Graham Compline Fund for the future sustainability of this service, checks can be made to St. John’s with the word “Compline” in the memo line.
