TAIZÉ PRAYERJoin us for Taizé prayer on two Thursdays in Lent 2024. On Thurs, Feb. 29 and Mar. 21 at 7:00 p.m., we will offer a meditative prayer service in the musical style of Taizé, a small ecumenical monastic community in southern France that has become well known for its unique worship services of sung prayer.
The service is about 40 minutes long and features the singing of numerous short choruses that are repeated in order to meditate on the words. An example of Taizé music is “O Lord, Hear Our Prayer,” a familiar prayer response. Each service also includes a Scripture reading, a time of silence, candle lighting, and Communion.
