Join us for the singing of Compline (Night Prayer) this Sunday, February 21 at 9 pm in the Church Nave! For the final prayer of the day in the Divine Office, the trio will sing psalms, hymns, and selections from scripture from the Reliquary in the Church Nave, lit only by candles. The service lasts approximately 45 minutes and is the perfect way to end your day in reverence and prayer.
We will also be live streaming this service, so if you can’t join us in person, join us via live stream! We have compline the third Sunday of every month.
Compline, also known as Night Prayer, is the final service of the day in the Christian tradition of canonical hours. It is the prayer said before going to sleep each night. It begins “The Lord almighty grant us a peaceful night and a perfect end.” What follows is 30-40 minutes of sung prayer consisting of hymns, psalms, scripture readings, petitions, and The Canticle of Simeon (also known as nunc dimittis). The service concludes with a benediction and an antiphon to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Compline at Our Lady will be sung by a small choir in a darkened church, lit only by candles. Those who come to pray with us need not feel any obligation to participate in the singing, but are encouraged to use the time to find a moment of peace at the end of the day, listening to the sung prayers and communing with God in their hearts. Compline will also be live streamed!
***Deacon Michael Kopczewski will give a short, <10-minute talk before we begin Compline. Deacon Michael will discuss Compline and the Liturgy of the Hours in general. He will give some fascinating information on the history of the tradition and how it can play an important role in your prayer life today. If you are new to praying the Divine Office, or if you’ve been praying it for years, you’re sure to gain some great new insights into the tradition.***
Join us Sunday, September 20, 2020 at 9 pm in the Church Nave to pray Compline together!
