Taizé Prayer Services

A Taizé service involves sung and chanted prayers, meditation,
a period of silence, liturgical readings, and icons. There is no preaching.
It is a time of communal prayer, song, and meditative silence.
All are always welcome.

We invite you to join us in-person for this time of prayer. Services are held monthly on the 1st Tuesday at 7 PM. During the COVID-19 pandemic (2020), Avondale shared Taizé services online. Find past services below or on our YouTube channel.

ABOUT:  One of Taizé's trademarks is the singing of distinctive and much-repeated prayer chants during candlelit prayer services. Taizé music highlights simple phrases, usually lines from the Psalms or other pieces of scripture, repeated or sung in canon. The repetition is designed to help with meditation and prayer. We hope you are able to participate and find this service to be a time of meaning and quiet reflection. 

Avondale's Taizé service will be in traditional formatting with moments of silence lasting five minutes or less. The chants will be printed for your participation. Find a comfortable spot and invite calm and quiet into your body. Communal prayer can be powerful and healing. Thank you for joining us.
