Candlelit Compline

Leave your stress, your phone, and your anxieties at the door and enter into the peaceful silence of St. Peter’s Church for Night Prayer, also known as Compline. This ancient service was traditionally sung by monks to mark the end of the day. Today at St. Peter’s Church, a small choir sings Night Prayer unseen from the church balcony in the candlelit sanctuary.

Compline is a half-hour of reflection and meditation—a place to be anonymous, where you can sit in stillness and let the stunningly beautiful sounds of Roman chant envelop you.

Come as you are—and make yourself comfortable. All are welcome to a time of peace and tranquility in an otherwise noisy world.
