Thursday, 8 PM
December 5, 12 & 19
For centuries, monks have been gathering to chant their bedtime prayers in a service known as Compline (from the Latin word meaning ‘complete’).
We are delighted by the successful launch of our contemplative Compline series last night. A hearty number – full of new faces – joined the Brothers in the darkened chapel, lit by many candles, when the chapel gates opened at 7:30pm. We shared quiet meditation time as more visitors arrived. The service began at 8pm and ran for 30 minutes of beautiful music, followed by another 30 minutes of quiet mediation time. Many stayed to soak in the atmosphere of beauty and peace.
