The Office of Compline for June 12, 2016

June 12, 2016

The Fourth Sunday after Pentecost


The office of Compline was offered in memory of the fifty persons slaughtered in Orlando and fifty-three persons wounded. The service began with tolling of the Peace Bell while members of the choir carried forth fifty lighted candles, placing them on the chancel steps in front of the altar. Candle-lighting sentences (lucernaria) were sung and then a prayer offered for the departed before commencing the solemn procession.

HYMN: Lord, whose love through humble service (Tune: Saint Helena) – Calvin Hampton (1938-1984)

    I listen on Sunday evening as a personal comfort and with solidarity for all who died or were injured and for all who loved and lost someone. Thanks you again.
