What is Taizé ?
Taizé is a contemplative candle-lit ecumenical prayer service in the model set by the French village of Taizé.
What happens at a Taize service?
This prayer service moves along according to a certain rhythm through sung prayers, simple, beautiful music, a time of silence, spoken and silent prayers, and an opportunity for individual prayer and anointing with holy oil. We invite all who attend this ecumenical offering to the community to stop, pray with song and silence, and listen to the “still, small voice” within. The mind calms and the soul opens up. God speaks and the heart hears.
How long does the service last?
The service generally lasts 45-50 minutes.
