On April 5, 2022, a new worship experience was offered at Saint Mark’s: Taizé Prayer. The first outing was very well-received, and the next offering has been scheduled for June 7.

Taizé Prayer is named after small village in eastern France which, for over 50 years, has been the home of an ecumenical Christian monastic community. Members of the Taizé community belong to several different Christian denominations. Catholics, Anglicans, Protestants, Orthodox and others live and pray together, share a simple life and welcome thousands of visitors who come to spend time with them every year from all over the world.

Taizé Prayer services have a strong meditative quality and are comprised of silence and song, candlelight and stillness, prayer and contemplation. The singing at Saint Mark’s service was led by four members of the Evensong Choir, and all are invited to join in as you feel moved. We invite all who attend this service, either online or in person, 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.

If you have any questions, please contact Cathedral Sacristan Michael Seewer (mseewer@saintmarks.org).
