Compline

Compline – night prayer – is the final worship of the day in the monastic system of canonical hours. Dating from the fourth century, this contemplative office focuses on spiritual peace.

During the 35 minutes of sung Compline, no words are spoken; worshipers bathe in beautiful, timeless music, sung by Trinity’s Schola Cantorum. With lights dimmed and candles flickering, the calming ancient chants offer time and space for personal meditation and reflection. You will be invited to light a candle, offer prayers, and be still in God’s presence.

The liturgy is designed to bring a sense of deep inner peace as we begin a new week. Our Trinity Cathedral Schola Cantorum chants the Compline liturgy, and they also offer several unaccompanied anthems appropriate for nightfall and each liturgical season.

Enter the darkened cathedral, light a candle, and experience transcendence. Compline is offered once a month at 7:00 p.m. Contact our Canon Precentor, Marty Wheeler Burnett, or Brother James Dowd for more information.

Feast of Father Hiram Hisanori Kano

Today, the Episcopal church commemorates the life and witness of Fr. Hiram Hisanori Kano. Fr. Kano, known as the Saint of Nebraska, served as a missionary among Japanese Americans in Nebraska and to American soldiers imprisoned for being AWOL during World War II while he himself was imprisoned, along with a great deal more service and ministry in the state and world.

Almighty God, who has reconciled the world to yourself through Christ: Entrust to your Church the ministry of reconciliation, as you did to your servant Hiram Hisanori Kano, and raise up ambassadors for Christ to proclaim your love and peace wherever conflict and hatred divide; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Trinity Cathedral gives thanks for his life and witness at 12:10pm today with the Holy Eucharist in the chapel (entrance off Capitol street). All are welcome.

Christ the King Sunday
Nov

8:30 AM08:30

Christ the King Sunday

Feast celebrated on the last Sunday of the liturgical year. It celebrates Christ's messianic kingship and sovereign rule over all creation.

Marion Hatchett notes that the Prayer Book collect for Proper 29, the last Sunday of the church year, is a "somewhat free" translation of the collect of the Feast of Christ the King in the Roman Missal. This collect prays that God, "whose will it is to restore all things in your well-beloved Son, the King of kings and Lord of lords," will "Mercifully grant that the peoples of the earth, divided and enslaved by sin, may be freed and brought together under his most gracious rule" (BCP, p. 236).

Good Friday

12:10 p.m., Stations of the Cross (Cathedral)

Gather by candlelight in the cathedral at noon on Good Friday as a solemn procession recalls Jesus’ journey to Calvary. Each stop along the Way of the Cross—a “station”—is marked with a scripture reading, a prayer, and a meditative sung response. The liturgy mystically transports us to the ancient city of Jerusalem, preparing our hearts and minds for Easter. The cathedral will be open for silent prayer for a period of time following the Stations of the Cross liturgy.

 

5:30 p.m. Children's Good Friday Service

Join us for a special Good Friday service appropriate for children and all ages!

 

7:00 p.m., Good Friday Liturgy with Cathedral Choir

The Friday before Easter Day, on which the church commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus. It is a day of fasting and special acts of discipline and self-denial. The liturgy of the day includes John's account of the Passion gospel, a solemn form of intercession known as the solemn collects (dating from ancient Rome), and devotions before the cross (commonly known as the veneration of the cross).

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday recalls the events of Jesus’ betrayal and arrest and the night before he died. At the end of the Maundy Thursday service liturgy, the consecrated elements of bread and wine are placed on the altar in the Nativity Chapel as a way of symbolizing Jesus’ prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane before his arrest. An ancient tradition of the church is to keep a prayer vigil with the sacrament as a way of watching and praying with Jesus as he faces the final hours of his life.

It is an ancient practice to “sit and wait with Jesus” during the night and early morning hours on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. This year, we will again be keeping vigil with Jesus beginning immediately after the Maundy Thursday service concludes (about 8:00pm) until 12:00 midnight. This year, we are also adding early morning ours to “wait with Jesus” from 6:00am until Morning Prayer begins at 8:30am. All of this will take place in the Nativity Chapel. You are invited to sign up for half hour shifts on Thursday night and Friday morning (or both!). We would like to have at least one person praying in the chapel each of these half hours. To sign up, please contact Br. James at jdowd@episcopal-ne.org.

Blue Christmas

A Blue Christmas service is a time when we can, with others, acknowledge the “blue” feelings we have at Christmas time. For many who have lost a loved one, this is a time of sharp loneliness. For others, who have lost a relationship, health, a job, or had a financial setback it may be a time of pain, confusion or fear. This is not a joyous season for everyone. We hope you’ll join us to pray, light candles, and mark this aspect of this season with one another this night.
