• This only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord

  • Be still, and know that I am God

  • A place and a time for God

  • Come to me, all who labor and are heavy burdened, and I will give you rest

  • Come to the feast of Heaven and Earth

  • At the works of your hands I shout for joy

  • Be still, and know that I am God

Taizé Prayer with Adoration

Date: Jan 13, 2021 - 7:30pm


"[In the cross] we see definitively revealed the only divine omnipotence that can claim to correspond with a God of love: an omnipotence whose face bears the expression of a limitless love that nothing can quench, discourage or prevent from pouring itself out inexhaustibly" (Brother Emmanuel of Taizé).

The practice of contemplative prayer opens us to encounter and to be formed by this love that is poured out. Taizé worship is a contemplative communal prayer service that consists of meditative singing, Scripture reading, and periods of silence in order to reach a contemplative state. It is an international movement, inspired by an ecumenical interspiritual community in France. At St. Raphaela Center, we integrate our charism of Eucharistic Adoration with this contemplative worship.

Come to join us for a monthly Taizé prayer, including Eucharistic Adoration that will extend in silence until midnight after the hour-long Taizé service.

Dates: 2nd Wednesday of the month from 7:30-8:30pm. Adoration continues until midnight.

 All are welcome - no reservations required.
