Taizé Prayer

This prayer form comes from an ecumenical community in Taizé France. It is contemplative in nature, filled with musical mantras, litanies, prayers, intercession and silence. Taizé Prayer has become popular in parishes and other communities in the U.S. 

Join us at 7:00 p.m. in the CDH Pax Christi Chapel. All are always welcome.

Each month we will include a short summary of each prayer session. You can find that information below.
