The Office of Compline, sung by the men of the Cathedral Choir, resumes on Sunday, October 6, and will be offered on the first Sunday of every month during the academic year. The Office lasts about 30 minutes and consists of psalms, short passages from scripture, an office hymn, a canticle (Nunc Dimittis), a responsory, collect and additional prayers. In keeping with the earliest practices of the monastic communities, Compline is offered when the work of the day is completed, and the quietness of evening settles over the hearts and minds of those who have come together in thankfulness for the blessings of the day which has passed and in anticipation of God’s gift of a new day. The Office begins at 9:00 p.m. on the first Sunday of the month. We hope you will join us for this unique spiritual experience.
