‘OSH Compline’ Mobile App

Order of Saint Helena
Posted Jun 26, 2018

The Order of Saint Helena, a monastic community for women in the Episcopal Church, has created “OSH Compline”, a mobile app for night prayer. It is available by download for free from the App Store (iPhone and iPad) and from Google Play (Android devices.)

Compline is one of the traditional daily offices and is usually prayed in the evening just before bedtime. OSH plans to offer all four daily offices in a future release.

“OSH Compline” is based on the Saint Helena Breviary: Monastic Edition, which is the daily office book, or breviary, used by the OSH sisters. The OSH sisters revised this breviary over several decades for inclusive, expansive language and for contemporary theology while still retaining the beauty and flow of the language of the Book of Common Prayer.

The Saint Helena Breviary: Monastic Edition and Saint Helena Psalter are available in PDF on a CD which may be requested through our website: www.osh.org/breviary. The Saint Helena Psalter is available in print from Church Publishing.

The mission of OSH is to show forth Christ through a life of monastic prayer, hospitality and service: https://www.osh.org.
