Taizé Prayer at Saint Mark's

What exactly is Taizé Prayer? It is named after a 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, are comprised of silence and song, candlelight and stillness, prayer and contemplation, and are offered seasonally at Saint Mark's. We invite all who attend these services, 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.

You can view a recent service leaflet here to see what the order of service looks like. If you have any questions, or are interested in contributing in some way to our Taizé Prayer ministry, please contact Cathedral Sacristan Michael Seewer (mseewer@saintmarks.org). All are welcome, regardless if you have a background that is familiar with Taizé.
