Vespers by Candlelight

Contemplative atmosphere, no nursery provided – we encourage parents to rotate who will come on which night.  Older children are welcome.

Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday evenings from 7-8pm


Since the earliest days, Christians have engaged in set times of prayer throughout the day.  “Vespers” is the Latin word for “evening,” or “evening star,” and so evening prayers took on the name “Vespers” among other names.  This is a time of settling, of being, of abiding, of allowing the Holy Spirit to examine our own souls as we engage moments of prayer, scripture reading, singing, and quietness. It will be a Service of Light and Evening Prayer from the Book of Common Prayer, with a contemplative presentation made by a lay leader each night.  

This is the perfect way to fix our gaze for Holy Week.
