Roughly the equivalent of Vespers in the rest of the Roman Rite, Evensong is sung Evening Prayer and was originally formed by combining the monastic offices of Vespers and Compline in the Anglican Church; now approved for use in the Roman Catholic Church in the Ordinariates, please come pray this beautiful service with us.
