Taizé Prayer at St. Mary’s Rydal

Monthly Taizé evening prayer for Christians of all traditions. A simple, meditative form of worship, calling us to dwell deeply on Christ’s presence around and within us. Mantra songs (such as, “Jesus, Remember Me”), prayerful silence and short readings guide the focus of the prayer in a candle-lit environment. The Service lasts about 45 minutes.

Taizé Prayer is named for the ecumenical Christian community formed in Taizé, France during World War II. Today the Taizé community includes brothers from all Christian denominations, including Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox traditions.
