TAIZE PRAYER SERVICE

We hold a Taize Prayer Service the fourth Sunday of each month (except in May!) at 5:00pm. The taize service comes from the ecumenical community of Taize, France. Gathered in the presence of Christ, this is a time of meditative common prayer. During the service, we sing uncomplicated, repetitive songs, uncluttered by too many words, allowing the mystery of God to become known through the beauty of simplicity. A few words are sung over and over again which helps us to go deeper into prayer. In between the chants we have a Scripture reading followed by silence. During this silence, we allow the Word to sink deep into our hearts. Brother John, a Taize monk, tells us, “Taize is time to rest in God, to let the words listened to and sung penetrate one’s being.” Childcare is available during the service with a reservation.
