The Office of Compline for June 4, 2017

Construction continues at Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral. Four windows along the north wall have been removed. Soon, they will be replaced with new, energy-efficient windows. The absence of windows has made the cathedral ‘open air’, with road noise from I-5 and nearby streets invading. We know this negatively impacts those who listen via Classical KING FM 98.1 and those who hear us via internet streams and podcasts. We are told we should be able to return to our usual Compline corner in mid- to late-August. Thank you for your patience during construction.
