Taize Prayer 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.

If you were fortunate enough to attend the beautiful service held at St. Mary's on April 6th, then you were able to experience it firsthand. It was a moving service, with  prayer, reflection, music and the beauty of the candlelit sanctuary.
