Weekly Vespers at UBC

"...the sun knows it's time for setting, Thou makest darkness and it is night...." (Psalm 104: 19-20)

Weekly Vespers is held Tuesday evenings at 6:00 PM. Services are held at St Mark's Chapel at UBC. This ancient evening rite of the Orthodox Church recapitulates creation, the sin of humanity and our salvation in Jesus Christ. Through prayers, psalms and the hymns of the Church we offer our worship to God in spirit and in truth.

Our time of worship is always followed by a time of fellowship and discussion lead by Fr Christopher. Please join us.
