“Be still, and know that I am God.”Psalm 46:10
Taizé is an ecumenical monastic community in France dedicated to spreading the message of peace and reconciliation among all the people of the world.
The Taizé service is a form of contemplative worship that incorporates music, mystical practices and inter-spiritual beliefs. According to the Taizé songbook: “Short chants, repeated again and again, give it a meditative character…Using just a few words, [the chants] express a basic reality of faith, quickly grasped by the mind. As the words are sung over many times, this reality gradually penetrates the whole being.”
Take some time out of your busy day and explore the holy through melodic chanting, candlelight and stillness. Held in the Side Chapel, this intimate service combines sacred scripture, prayers, and music in a way that allows us to reconnect to the sacred in our lives.
No previous experience necessary. The repetition of the chants allow people to enter as they feel comfortable.
Taizé services are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Side Chapel.
