Night Prayer is Sunday St. Barnabas

The Men’s Compline Choir of Bainbridge Island will sing the Office of Compline at 8 p.m. on the first Sunday of the month at Saint Barnabas Episcopal Church.

Compline, also called Night Prayer, is the last of the traditional daily services sung by monastic communities and dates back to at least the 8th century. The service consists of chant, readings, psalms, prayers, petitions and hymns, sung in a contemplative setting in a darkened church. All are welcome.

The next service is 8 p.m. June 1 and is the last Compline service of the season. Compline resumes in October.
