Join us (via Zoom) as youth from St. Joseph’s/Julia’s Parish and First Parish in Lincoln present readings and reflections interspersed with sacred music to deepen our connection to the Spirit.
Taizé is a monastic community located in Taizé, France, founded in the 1940s by Roger Louis Schütz-Marsauche, familiarly called Brother Roger. The “brothers” of Taizé have taken a vow of celibacy and are committed to a lifetime of simplicity, service, and community. There is an ecumenical emphasis at Taizé, as expressed in their official website, which says the community “wants its life to be a sign of reconciliation between divided Christians and between separated peoples.”
The contemplative worship practices of the Taizé community are promoted at an annual international conference. Taizé worship is being incorporated in a wide variety of churches, Protestant and Catholic, and its pattern of devotion is emulated in other monastic communities around the world.
A Taizé worship service involves sung and chanted prayers, meditation, a period of silence, and liturgical readings. There is no preaching. The style of prayer practiced at Taizé has attracted many worshipers from around the globe and from many different denominations.
We invite people of all faiths and people in search of faith to join us. Services are usually candlelit, so please have a candle ready wherever you will be Zooming in from.
