Vespers(Evening Prayer) is a time honored Benedictine tradition.  We come together at the end of the day to give God thanks and praise.  All are welcome to attend.  Evening Prayer begins at 5:30pm in the Saint Joseph Chapel.

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 for specific dates and changes in schedule.
