at Saint Mark’s CATHEDRAl
In April 2017, the cathedral broke ground on a multi-million dollar preservation and renovation project—the exterior walls of the cathedral will be clad in limestone and the windows replaced with new energy-efficient models designed to match the old windows in style and color. Construction will continue through mid-December 2017. The cathedral will remain open throughout construction.
The office of Compline has been impacted. The choir continues to sing from the organ loft due to interior scaffolding in place through mid- to late-November. New windows have arrived and installation is nearly complete. We anticipate a return to our beloved Compline corner on November 26 or perhaps December 3. Learn more about the project!
The Compline Window given in memory of Dr. Peter R. Hallock
There are few features of Saint Mark’s Cathedral as prominent as its windows. Renovations of the cathedral have just begun and the massive windows of the “Holy Box” will be replaced with new, efficient ones while retaining the aesthetic of the present ones.
The cost of replacing the window in the Compline corner is $150,000. As of November 1, 2017, we have raised $150,000 from some 72 donors. Thank you to all who donated, allowing the window to be named in loving memory of Peter R. Hallock, who founded the Compline Choir 61 years ago. You can still be a part of this dedication by making a one-time or monthly gift to the Living Stones Capital Campaign. Any amount will be gratefully received. Learn more and donate now!
“The Lord Almighty grant us a quiet night and a perfect end. Amen.”
The men of the Compline Choir chant and sing the service to an audience of thousands who attend in person or by live media every Sunday night at 9:30 PM. The Compline Choir invites you to contemplation and reflection.
