Evening Prayer

Evening Prayer, also known as Vespers, is celebrated in the choir stalls on Sundays during Advent and Christmas and Lent at 3:00pm.

Evening Prayer consists of the singing of a hymn and psalms, the proclamation of the Word of God and prayers for the Church and the world. At the end of Evening Prayer everyone processes to the Lady Chapel for the singing of the Marian antiphon.


Morning Prayer

Thursdays throughout the year and every Tuesday during Advent and Lent, we celebrate Morning Prayer at 9:15am in the Saint Joseph Chapel (20 minutes in length).

Morning Prayer consists of the singing of a hymn and Psalms; proclamation of the Word of God and prayers for the Church and the world. 


Compline

8:00pm – Main Church
First and Third Sundays*
“Lord, grant us a quiet night:” join us on Sunday evening as we pray for peace in our world at the close of day.
The ancient spiritual offering of night prayer will be led by the Minnesota Compline Choir, directed by Aaron Humble.
Compline is characterized by a spirit of contemplation and prayer in the fading light of day, further enhanced by the warm a cappella musical offerings of anthems and psalms by the choir. See Schedule
