Vespers

Choral Vespers

The public and communal prayer of God’s people is rightly considered among the first duties of the Church. Over the centuries, the traditional elements of Christian prayer were carefully arranged to sanctify the whole day in prayer in the Divine Office.

The Office of Vespers, the traditional Evening Prayer of the Church, offers to God our praise for the day that is ending, and in the words of the Canticle of Mary, ‘glorifies the Lord’ for his goodness to us.

As we continue our Lenten pilgrimage, our Cathedral Choral Scholars will lead us in this communal prayer as we sing the Office of Vespers each Thursday evening at 5pm. Vespers is open to the public and will also be live-streamed with the sharing of the order of service on this page, so that those watching online can participate safely and fully from home.

We look forward to having you with us spiritually for our communal prayer.
