Singing is one of the most important forms of prayer. A few words, lines or chants sung repeatedly to instrumental accompaniment reinforce the meditative quality of the prayer. This expresses a basic reality of faith, quickly grasped by the intellect, which gradually penetrates our hearts and entire being.
Taizé is an ecumenical community in France whose members live out the gospel through reconciliation. Their form of prayer, now practiced throughout the world, introduces people to meditative praying with simple melodies woven in succession into a tapestry of continuous prayer.
The underlying aim is to enter together into the mystery of God’s presence. Please join us in the sanctuary for this very special candle-lit service featuring music and song, interspersed with brief readings from scripture.
