Compline – St. John’s Episcopal Cathedral, corner Figueroa and Adams. Compline is among the most ancient services of the Christian tradition. It was originally designed in the 6th century to prepare monks to transition from work to sleep … through candlelight, through prayer, through stillness, through song.   Please join us for this 30-minute service of prayer and song by candlelight on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month at 8:00 PM. A time of food and fellowship will immediately follow service.  For more information, visit or email


WE ARE Christians and other friends @ USC who follow Jesus’ way of love, growing in spirit and service to others — through these campus ministries:

In loving fellowship and spiritual practice, we follow in the historic traditions of Christian faith, interpreting them in light of social and scientific progress. We find grace in intellectual and contemplative engagement with our faith. We believe there is more value in questioning than in absolute answers: we take the Bible seriously because we don’t have to take it literally. We affirm that other religions can be as good for others as ours is good for us. We strive to make our earth a heavenly place of peace, justice, kindness, and beauty: we don’t believe anybody is going to hell. We affirm LGBT sexuality and we celebrate same-sex marriages.
