Taizé Service

Taizé

What is Taizé?
Taizé is a village in eastern France. Since 1940 it has been the home of an ecumenical community of brothers committed to prayer and worship. Thousands of pilgrims of all ages visit Taizé, now known as a place of international meetings of prayer and reflection. Brother Roger first came to the village of Taizé in 1940. He dreamt of starting a community "on account of Christ and. the Gospel". From its beginnings the community has worked for reconciliation among Christians split apart into different denominations. But the brothers do not view reconciliation among Christians as the end in itself: it concerns all of humanity, since it makes the Church a place of communion for all.

About Taizé Worship
Taizé worship includes candlelight, prayers, readings, silence, and soft music with repetitive words. The service is very meditative and offers a wonderful opportunity to be silent and focus on The Lord. Come as you are -- and listen.
