Choral Evensong

Steeped in the beauty of the Anglican tradition, Evensong meets us at the even point between the active day and the restful night.

Sung at the close of day in cathedrals and churches throughout the world, Choral Evensong is a service of Evening Prayer, derived from the ancient offices of Vespers and Compline. The choir sings the traditional evening prayers of the church that have been offered for centuries, while the congregation listens, joins in the hymns, and adds their own prayers to those of the choir. It is an opportunity for peaceful meditation in the midst of a busy week.

The St. John’s Choir and Choristers offer Choral Evensong on the third Wednesday of each month from September through May. Each service is followed by a light reception held in the parlor of the Parish House.

Complimentary parking is available in the C&C parking garage located at 818 Connecticut Avenue NW. Please see an usher for a validation sticker.
