Growing in God's Love as an Open, Caring Community

Taize for Holy Advent by Mary Ann Perry St. Patrick’s Music Director

Please join us for our next Taizé service on Thursday, December 6 @ 6:30 p.m. as we prepare for a Holy Advent.

 “What came to be through God was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:4-5

Taizé Worship is a Non-denominational Service in which meditative prayer, scripture, and Songs of Taizé are used in a relaxed atmosphere where the worshiper will easily become comfortable with the music, scripture, prayers, quiet reflection, and community.  Taizé songs are short chants that are repeated several times so one can feel the inner movement of the music and allow themselves to settle into a contemplative worship experience. There is time for silence with meditation and prayer. The service is patterned after worship in the ecumenical Community of Taizé, France. We will also use music from the Iona Community in Scotland and other meditative music for this particular service.

St. Patrick’s hosts a Taizé service bi-monthly.

Thank you.
