A “Night-cap for the Soul,” compline is a beautiful, 20-minute, sung service to close out the day.
Preceding Compline you’ll find SUPPER at St. Martin’s at 6 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays.
Wednesdays April 26, May 3, and May 17
7:30 to 9 p.m. in the Library, on the second floor of the Parish House
Join Deacon Carol Duncan in reading and discussing America’s Original Sin by Jim Wallis. We will use the online discussion guide that has video clips and discussion questions. Each evening will be self-contained, covering one or two aspects of the book. If you get the book and read it you will learn more, but you will profit from the discussions even if you don’t have the book. Consider this an Eastertide examen for self-reflection. Sessions will be held on three Wednesdays; April 26, May 3, and May 17 from 7:30–9 p.m. in the Library, on the second floor of the Parish House. Come to all three evenings if you can.
