Taizé is an ecumenical monastic order in Burgundy, France, with a strong devotion to peace and reconciliation through prayer, meditation, and song. Taizé welcomes young people from around the world to live and pray among the brothers, hosting up to 3,000 people during Lent and Easter.

The repetitive sung simple prayers draw you deeply into communion with the Holy Spirit and allows the clutter of your thoughts to subside. Holy Scripture and silence are interwoven in the experience in order for worshipers to be attentive to God’s voice. There will be opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation throughout.

There can be no better way to prepare for Holy Week than to approach it full of God’s abundant grace.

Taizé Prayer Service with Opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation – Wednesday March 29 at 7:00pm at St. John
