    A deeply moving service with candlelight, sung prayers, chant, and incense. Sung the Second Sunday of the Month, October through April. Evensong is one of the jewels of the Anglican tradition, with sung settings of the psalms, evening canticles and prayers from the 1662 Prayer Book. Experience the timeless texts of the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis as interpreted by celebrated composers.

    Evensong will now start at 4pm featuring the Choirs of All Saints'. The organ recital will follow the service at 5pm with a reception after in St. Barbara. 


    The November Evensong service is our annual Solemn Requiem for All Souls' with Holy Eucharist starting with a choral prelude at 3:30pm.

  • Fourth Sundays - Compline

    with the Men's & Women's Schola

    2019 Dates:   January 27, February 24, March 24, April 28


    Compline is the final service in the daily office of the Book of Common Prayer. Originating in the 4th century, Compline follows the traditional pattern of brief psalms, a reading, prayers and the Nunc Dimittis (the Song of Simeon). The word “Compline” comes from the Latin word for “completions,” as we pray in thanksgiving for the day that is completed, and for safety in the coming night. Services are Fourth Sundays at 8:00pm in the main church from September through April. This is a ‘come as you are’ service and congregants may choose freely to participate in the liturgy or to simply sit in quiet prayer and/or mediation. All are welcome.
