Office of Compline


At 9:00 p.m. on the first Sunday of the month (September through June), the men of the Cathedral Choir sing the Office of Compline.

2023-2024 Dates:

September 3rd | October 1st | November 5th | December 3rd
January 7th |
February 4th | March 3rd | April 7th | May 5th | June 2nd

The Office lasts about 40 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—a time when the quietness of evening settles over the hearts and minds of those who have come together. It is an opportunity for reflection, to offer gratitude for the blessings of the day which has passed, and to anticipate God’s gift of a new day to come. We hope you will join us for this unique spiritual experience.
