Giving Thanks for the Day:
Compline at Pilgrim
Sunday, June 13, at 8:00pm

Pilgrim tenors and basses will be preparing a short contemplative service based on the liturgy for bedtime called “compline.” We will sing the service on Facebook Live on Sunday, June 13, at 8:00pm; the recording will be available for listening any time after the service. A Facebook account is not required; you can either click the link on the Pilgrim website that leads to the Facebook live events or go directly to the Pilgrim Facebook event. The bulletin for this service is available here. Additionally, for the first time this year, pilgrims will be able to attend compline in person! Please sign up by noon on June 13 if you would like to attend in person (signup link).

If you missed the Nov 1, Dec 13, Feb 21, or March 21 compline services from this past season, you can still listen here.

Re-Visioning Evening Worship at Pilgrim

In January, the evening worship team requested input from the evening community on reimagining evening worship for the 2021-22 program year. They have since formed two committees, one each for the Celtic and Nordic services, and have been meeting since April. Based on those meetings, they have decided to hold one Celtic and one Nordic service each month for September through December, which will be similar to the previous Celtic and Nordic services Pilgrim has held, while incorporating many new elements as well.

Over the past two decades, the team has gained much experience and has developed many ideas, but stepping into this new season of evening worship is no small feat. Now, it's your turn: The team is in need of pilgrims from the evening community to join the re-visioning committees in July and August and bring these reimagined services to life. Your voice matters, and your input is valuable! The team is looking for a few more committee members on each team to help guide the re-visioning process -- will you join them in this work?
