Welcome to Taize Service for Healing & Wholeness
We welcome you to the The Center's Taize Service for Healing and Wholeness. Our service incorporates ancient Christian traditions of prayer and healing with simple chant and prayers. The Taize Service for Healing and Wholeness is a candle-lit ecumenical worship service with scripture, meditative silence, healing prayer, and song led by the Caritas Community at Trinity Cathedral and singer and composer Barbara Bridge. Through singing simple chants, the mind is quieted and the heart is opened as the song becomes prayer.We believe that healing is a grace that connects us to life in God.
Taize Services take place the 2nd Sunday of the month, year around at 7:00pm in Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. All are welcome.
About Taize Prayer
The contemplative prayer form that has become known as “Taize Prayer”, takes its name from the Taize Community of France, founded in the early 1940’s by Brother Roger. Brother Roger arrived in the village of Taizé, France in 1940. In the midst of World War II, he dreamed of creating a community where reconciliation was a daily reality. He began by giving shelter to refugees of the war, especially Jews. Brother Roger recognized that the search for reconciliation was within each individual as well as within the community. Initially, the Taizé founder lived alone, until brothers from various Protestant and Catholic backgrounds followed. Today, as an ecumenical monastic community, Taizé is a sign of reconciliation. People from around the world, especially young people, come to Taizé looking for meaning in their lives as they prepare for responsibilities in their own communities. More information on Taize prayer and the community can be found on the Taize website.
