Taizé Prayer

Taizé-at-St.-Andrew’s

“Come to me all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.”

pray offerings at the altar

For almost 10 years, St. Andrew’s has offered Taizé prayer on Sunday evenings at 6pm. This one-hour contemplative liturgy is based on the worship of the eponymous, ecumenical monastic fraternity in Taizé, France. Our liturgy at St. Andrew’s includes singing, silence, and communion. Meditative repetition of simple Taizé chant-like songs helps us to breathe deeply and relax. Our dedicated music team, led by Arthur Lee, consists of guitar, keyboard, and alto saxophone, as well as multiple voices, in various configurations depending on who is present. The music team always welcomes new members. The worship space is illuminated by candles and dominated by a large Taizé icon cross similar to a St. Francis cross. The atmosphere is conducive to prayer in many forms. All are welcome at this peace-filled and restful service.
