Swan Song

Yesterday’s Compline marked the end of an era. We ended our day and our singing of a version of Compline that this community has prayed every night for nearly 40 years.

Tonight we begin praying a new setting of Compline. We have new hymns, new chant settings for the traditional Compline Psalms 4 and 90, a sung Canticle of Simeon, and three versions of the Salve Regina to use based on the degree of solemnity of the day.

You are welcome to join us 7:30pm any/every evening to experience our “new” Compline prayer.
