2017 Lenten Taize Service

Taize Prayer

 

Prayer in the spirit of the Taize Community is a meditative form of common prayer.  Gathered in the presence of Christ we sing uncomplicated, repetitive songs, uncluttered by too many words, allowing the mystery of God to become tangible through the beauty of simplicity.  A few words sung over and over again reinforce the meditative quality of prayer.  They express a basic reality of faith that can quickly be grasped by the intellect and that gradually penetrates the whole being.

Saint Mary of the Assumption is hosting a Taize-style worship service for our cluster on Saturday evening, March 25th at 7:00 pm.  If you are seeking an opportunity for quiet centering and reflection during the season of Lent -if you are curious about what a Taize service is like – please join us.
