Evensong

lighting candlesEvensong is a very ancient, beautiful, and contemplative service for which the Anglican Church is well known. It is our annecdote for the treadmill most of us are on in this post-modern society in which we live. The service is candlelit and the prayers and responses are chanted or sung in English. The service is also very calming. Many people tell us that it is the perfect ending for a hectic week. We at St. Luke's have chosen to have this service on the 3rd Friday of each month. The only month we do not have Evensong is December.

If you have never been to an Evensong service, but you are interested, please come. Do not worry if you do not know the chants or the songs. Just let the service enwrap you with its calming influence and listen for the small, still voice of God. In time, all the chants and the songs will become familiar. Whether you know the service or not, we provide booklets for your use with the complete service except for the hymns. The hymns are in the hymnals located in each pew.
