Sundays at 8 PM: Compline
This contemplative service is almost entirely sung by the Pittsburgh Compline Choir. Traditionally, one or more of the Psalms associated with Compline are sung or chanted by the choir. Before the service, the congregation is invited to submit names of persons in need or persons who have died to be chanted as part of the evening prayers. The service reaches back to the time of an undivided Christendom and resonates with people from widely different faith traditions. Music from the last 1000 years is offered by a dedicated choir made up of students and community members. Compline has been offered at Heinz Chapel by the Pittsburgh Compline Choir for over 30 years. For more information, visit www.pghcompline.com.
Services begin for the fall 2023 term on September 10.
