Taizé is a simple meditative worship of repetitive prayer in song combined with reflective periods of silence. These songs and ample silence are means for those gathered, …”on account of Christ and the Gospel”, “with a common voice”…to proclaim and respond to the Word of God.” By its very nature Taizé is an ecumenical community. Taizé’s vocation is to strive for communion among all. There are many beautiful elements of Taizé worship. Prayer around the cross is a way of expressing an invisible communion not only with the crucified Jesus but with all who suffer, all those condemned to silence. Icons contribute to the beauty of the worship setting as well as many periods of prayerful silence. Singing is one of the most essential elements of Taizé worship. Short songs, repeated again and again, give it a meditative character. Please join us for this wonderful evening of praise.
