Hosted by: St. Joseph Young Adults Community
Join us for an evening of prayer and worship in what will hopefully be a recurring service at St. Joseph Parish. We will incorporate the musical tradition of Taizé prayer into adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
Formed in the French town of the same name in 1940, Taizé prayer blossomed from a prayer community intended to create a place of peace and refuge in war-torn France. Taizé prayer consists of a series of repetitive melodies and chants interspersed with reflection and a period of contemplative silence. Brother Roger, the founder of the Taizé community, says of the meditative prayer: "Nothing is more conducive to a communion with the living God than a meditative common prayer with, as its high point, singing that never ends and that continues in the silence of one's heart when one is alone again."
We hope to see you there!
