Modern life is busy, hectic and demanding. If you are looking for a short time of respite from the pressures of life, please consider joining us for Compline in the quiet, candlelit sanctuary at University Lutheran.


Compline is a service of evening prayers traditionally spoken or chanted before retiring for the night.

This ancient service is the last of the offices of the monastic day, dating back to the 6th century, as instituted by St. Benedict. Gregorian Chant, an evening hymn, as well as choral music at any given service from Tallis, Byrd, Walter, Schutz, Distler, Holst, Howells MacMillan, will be sung by the choir. 

Every service will be preceded by musical prelude.  Services begin at 8.00 PM. The service typically lasts no more than 30 minutes and concludes with a time of fellowship.
