Compline (Night Prayer) has long been a special part of the liturgical life of St. John’s. This short service of ancient prayers, psalms, and mystery is led by Director of Music Richard Gray, every Thursday at 7pm (beginning September 8) in the Church and on YouTube. Incense is used at this service.

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.

Throughout the year we will also offer special Choral Compline services led by local musical ensembles:

The Mirandola Ensemble: Nicholas Chalmers, director
