Taizé Prayer is based on an ancient Christian principle expressed by Brother Roger, a founding member of the Taizé community in France: “Nothing is more conducive to a communion with the living God than a meditative common prayer with, at its high point, singing that never ends and that continues in the silence of one’s heart when one is alone again.” The focal point of this communion is the cross – the symbol of God’s saving presence in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We started our Taizé Prayer Service at Trinity in the fall of 2001. We have offered this service continuously since then on a seasonal basis. Our season of Taizé Prayer runs from October through March on the 3rd Sunday of each month at 5:00 p.m.
For 2016 – 2017, the dates are as follows:
- October 16, 2016
