Taize Prayer Resumes at St. Mary`s

21 Sep 2021, 2 p.m.

On October 3<sup>rd</sup> at 7.00pm at St. Mary`s we shall resume our monthly Taizé Prayer: evening prayer for Christians of all traditions. It is a simple, meditative form of worship, calling us to dwell deeply on Christ's presence around and within us. Mantra songs (such as, "Jesus, Remember Me"), prayerful silence and short readings guide the focus of the prayer in a candle-lit environment. The Service lasts about 45 minutes. We hope to hold this service on the FIRST Sunday of the month (The next will be on: November 7th & December 5th) 

Taizé Prayer is named for the ecumenical Christian community formed in Taizé, France during World War II. Today the Taizé community includes brothers from all Christian denominations, including Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox traditions.
