Candles and stillness in St. Paul's Chapel during Compline by Candlelight

Compline by Candlelight

Sundays; 8-8:30pm in St. Paul’s Chapel

Compline is an ancient rite of prayers to end the day; Compline means "completion." Trinity's 30-minute Compline service is unique in that all who enter hold a candle and simple listen to The Choir of Trinity Wall Street beautifully improvise the Compline nighttime prayers in song. There's nothing to do but be.

Compline takes place in-person and reservations are not required. Learn more about our health and safety policies.

Compline is not video-recorded or livestreamed; however, Compline audio podcasts are released every Sunday evening on our website, FacebookApple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Podcast AddictPodbayPod Nods, and other apps. Listen to the latest episodes below.
