The Men’s Compline Choir of Bainbridge Island will sing the Office of Compline at 8 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1 at Saint Cecilia Parish.

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, and is approximately 30 minutes in length.

All are welcome. Saint Cecilia Parish is at 1310 Madison Ave. North.
