Compline at The Church of the Advent

Announcing Compline at the Advent—Second Sundays at 8 pm

Beginning Sunday, December 11, at 8:00 pm, the Church of the Advent will begin celebrating the ancient liturgy of Compline, preceded by Lucernarium, an evening service of lamp-lighting. All are invited to attend this new service with ancient roots in Christian practice. Going forward, we plan to pray Compline on the second Sunday of every month at 8:00 pm in the nave. There is particular need for parishioners familiar with liturgical practice at the Advent to participate, so if you are interested in helping celebrate this service of prayer before bedtime in the custom of early Christian monasticism, please contact Fr Hanson ( or Fr Wood ( This is a great opportunity to mark the Advent season with vigilance and reverence, and to become more familiar with the practice of daily prayer.
