April 20, 2018 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
On Friday, April 20 @ 7:30 pm, Br. Emile from Taizé, France will join us for this prayer service.
In the 1940’s a group of men created a prayer community in the small village of Taizé, in France. Since that time, it has become a pilgrimage spot for people from all over the world to pray together with this community, encounter God and for the reconciliation of Christians of all faiths.
Taizé prayer is flexible and has no real beginning or end. Songs are repeated over and over again to help us enter into the contemplation of the presence of God. The main purpose of Taizé music is to bring about a complete participation of all who are present; it is a way of saying what words cannot say and of expressing a spiritual image that swells from the depths of the human heart. Therefore, throughout the service we can expect periods of silence to allow for deeper reflection.
Come join us for this beautiful service of light and prayer that helps us to invite Christ into our hearts!
