Lenten taize prayer service
Taize Prayer Around the Cross
The season of Lent is very special for us because it embraces us in the knowledge that God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life (John 3:16). God is always inviting us to a deeper relationship. Lent gives us the opportunity to prepare our hearts to receive the incredible mercy and love of God offered on the cross. Prayer in the spirit of the Taizé 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.
Taize Prayer is held Tuesdays during Lent at 7:00pm
