for Sunday 25th September commencing 4 pm at Clonegam Church (inside).
Compline is a service originated from 4th century AD. it is an evening service, originally an office, and still is in today's monastic orders, Anglican and Roman Catholic. Saint Basil promoted it in the Eastern church and Saint Benedict in the Western Church. There will be no music, unless I can arrange it. It is not a sacramental service. it is a reflective service preparing us for the night ahead. would have been said in Clonegam and long before. So, everyone welcome and people should feel comfortable.
