These prayer services emerge from an ecumenical community of monks in Taizé, France. Brother Roger, Taizé’s founder, arrived in the village of Taizé, France in 1940. In the midst of World War II, he dreamed of creating a community where reconciliation was a daily reality. He began by giving shelter to refugees of the war, especially Jews. Brother Roger recognized that the search for reconciliation was within each individual as well as within the community. Initially, the Taizé founder lived alone, until brothers from various Protestant and Catholic backgrounds followed. Today, as an ecumenical monastic community, Taizé is a sign of reconciliation. People from around the world, especially young people, come to Taizé looking for meaning in their lives as they prepare for responsibilities in their own communities.
Taize Prayer started in a monastery in France and is a prayer around the cross. There are several songs/chants, a reading and interecessions. It's a great way to relax in a quiet atmosphere and spend some time with the Lord.
Join us the 3rd Wednesday of each month at Blessed Sacrament from 7:00 - 8:00 PM. Come and meet new people, and enjoy refreshments following the service.
