Join us for Advent Taizé Prayer
Taizé is a distinctive style of meditative prayer developed by an ecumenical community of monks in rural France. This quiet, moving, reflective prayer combines elements of the Church’s traditional Liturgy of the Hours with elements of contemplative meditation.
A typical Taizé prayer service incorporates periods of silence with meditative readings from Scripture, prayers of praise and intercession, and the frequent repetition of simple, contemporary chants based on the Psalms or other parts of Scripture. The result is to gradually move prayer from the head to the heart.
Join us on Thursday, December 7, December 14, and December 21 at 6:00 PM.
