Sung Compline
This Sunday, October 13. | 7:00-7:30pm
St. Mary's Episcopal Church

Compline is a brief yet ancient prayer service filled with darkness, candlelight, chanting, and incense. It is the final prayer service of the day in the Church's ancient prayer cycle that marks the hours of the day.

The service this month will be sung by the St. Benedict Singers of Benedictine College under the direction of Professor Timothy Tharaldson. Click here for a preview of the choir.
Adult Forum
The Benedictine Theology of Work

Sunday, October 20
After the 10:00am Mass

Benedictine spirituality has profoundly influenced and shaped Anglicanism, from its Daily Office to its monastic orders. This forum focuses on the Benedictine  theology of work . With its slogan  ora et labora  (pray and work), the Benedictine way of life is grounded in the integration of prayer and work. Fr. Charles and Nancy Wagner, our fellow parishioner and a member of the Worker Sisters of the Holy Spirit, will lead us in this exploration of the value and nature of work in the Benedictine tradition.
