Taizé Services

Wednesdays December 6, 13 & 20 @ 12:10pm

Taizé: "Taizé is a time to rest in God, to let the words listened to and sung penetrate one’s being." (Brother John, Taizé Monk)

With its origins in the ecumenical community of Taizé, France, Taizé is a meditative worship service with scripture, repetitive prayer set to simple music, and silence as its hallmarks. The scripture enlightens; the prayerful music soothes; and the silence allows reflection.

The Taizé experience inspires a calmness in body, mind, and spirit leading to a profound sense of peace. We invite you to join a community of worshippers in this tranquil time to rest in God.
