What is Compline & Vespers? Learn More & Join Us!
Our next Compline is on 3/1 & Vespers is on 3/7
Vespers, also called Evening Prayer, is part of the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. Through this prayer, the people of God sanctify the day by continual praise of God and prayers of intercession for the needs of the world.
Compline (from the word for “completion”), or Night Prayer, the last liturgy of prayers of the day, has been prayed in monasteries since the 6th century. It is prayed at our parish on (usually) the 1st Sunday of the month. Under musical director David Stattelman, the Schola approaches chanting Compline from the medieval style and perspective, that is, a fluid style with strong emphasis on conveying the meaning of the text and often with the addition vocal drones. The result is an experience listeners describe as “ethereal” and “contemplative.”
