Taizé Prayer


Taizé is an ecumenical (open to all Christians) form of prayer founded in Taizé, France and modeled after its ecumenical Christian monastic community. The purpose of the prayer is to foster reconciliation and peace among all people. The service consists of simple song, scripture, and an extended period of silence for meditation concluding with prayers for the world.



Taizé is on hiatus but may be offered in future. Check back for updates!
