Taizé Service

A quiet, reflective service to foster spiritual community

Taizé is the name of a quiet, candlelit service of chants, prayers and readings that takes place each third Sunday evening at 5:30 p.m. in the church.

The name comes from the town in France where, following World War II, a group of men set up an ecumenical religious community. One of the members of the community soon began to compose the simple chants that came to form the centerpiece of worship in the community, which over the years has drawn thousands of people, mostly young, to experience the beauty of their candlelit worship.

This service is very contemplative and has no sermon.
