Taize Style Meditation Service

April 18 @ 5:00 pm

What exactly is Taizé Prayer? It is named after a small village in eastern France which, for over 50 years, has been the home of an ecumenical Christian monastic community. Members of the Taizé community belong to several different Christian denominations. Catholics, Anglicans, Protestants, Orthodox and others live and pray together, share a simple life and welcome thousands of visitors who come to spend time with them every year from all over the world.

Taizé prayer services are comprised of silence and song, candlelight and stillness, prayer and contemplation. The music is unique and distinctive. Taizé chants feature deceptively simple refrains that are repeated, mantra-like, by the whole con-gregation, while instrumental and vocal soloists occasionally add verses on top of the repeated refrains. The music is acces-sible, participatory, and meditative.
