Evening prayer in the style of the community of Taizé
Thursday, February 11, 7:00 PM, Back Altar Space of Chapel of Saint Michael the Archangel
Evening prayer is sung in the manner of the Taizé Community, an ecumenical monastic community in France. The community works ecumenically at furthering peace within the human family by engendering reconciliation and healing of divisions among Christians. The Brothers developed a style of prayer consisting of simple meditative chants as well as periods of silence. A candle-lit service lasting about an hour includes quiet chant from both within and outside the Taizé Community, readings from the scripture, sung and spoken prayer, incense, icons, and periods of meditative silence.
