Taize

Taize

Taizé worship is an outgrowth of a movement founded in the French town of that name by an ecumenical Protestant and Catholic monastic fraternity headed by Brother Roger. It involves sung and chanted prayers, meditation, a period of silence, liturgical readings, and icons. There is no preaching. 

Taizé's emphasis, according to its website, is ecumenical. The community  “wants its life to be a sign of reconciliation between divided Christians and between separated peoples.”

 

Services of music and meditation are held at 6:45 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month, and every Tuesday during Advent and Lent.
