Taize @ St. Paul's Cathedral

Taizé Services during Lent
This Lent, Taizé services will be offered @ St. Paul's Cathedral on Tuesday Evenings at 7:30 p.m. Starting on February 24 and ending on March 24, 2015.

This is a service of simple music, Scripture reading and silence. Taizé offers an opportunity for quiet repose in the midst of our busy lives. Started in France after World War II, the service is ecumenical - an open door for all to enter and experience the presence of the Spirit. The Taizé service is designed to help one enter into the mystery of God's presence. The service has no formal leadership, no sermon and few words are spoken. One enters in silence and becomes aware of an inviting reverent space; a space for people to find the quiet place within, and in their own way, God.

The silence and absence of distractions are reminders that prayer is an experience of trusting God. Simple songs are sung repeatedly, giving them a reflective character. A Scripture is read, followed by silence, allowing words to find a pure tone of truth in each person's life. It is a simple, and for some, highly personal, form of worship and you are all invited. Bring a friend as well.
