Taize This Week!

We practice the contemplative sung worship tradition of Taize once a month while classes are in session. The last Taize well be held this Sunday, April 26th at 8:30 pm in Linehan Chapel!

What is Taize:

"Taize is an ecumenical sung and silent participatory prayer service designed to achieve a contemplative state through music, song and silence." from Understanding Taize Worship

Taize offers worshippers an opportunity for silent reflection on scripture and prayer through music and intercession. It comes out of a religious community in Taize, France that was formed by Brother Roger Schutz in 1940. To this day, hundreds of thousands of people make pilgrimage to the Taize community to participate in its worship and service.

All are invited for this evening of music and prayer!

Join us for worship!

Weekly services are held Sunday nights at 8:30 pm in Linehan Chapel.

Worship Schedule:

April 26 - Taize

May 3 - Last Protestant worship of the year - a celebration of our Senior(s)!
