St. Mark’s Concert Series: St. Michael and All Angels Evensong
Choral Evensong is probably the most Anglican liturgy in existence. A combination of the monastic services of vespers and compline, it is a lovely, sung evening service led by the choir in which we thank God for the day that has passed and ask for peace and protection during the night ahead. Join us as we celebrate Michael and all the angels in their great heavenly war against Satan and the forces of evil. Communion will follow in the chapel.
Free and Open to the Public
