About Taizé

What is a Taizé Contemplative Worship Experience? It is named after a small village called Taizé in France which, since 1940, has been the home of an ecumenical Christian monastic community. Members of the Taizé community belong to several different Christian denominations. Catholics, Anglicans, Protestants, Orthodox and others live and pray together in multiple languages, share a simple life and welcome thousands of visitors and pilgrims who come to spend time with them every year from all over the world.

Taizé Contemplative Worship Experiences are comprised of silence and song, candlelight and stillness, prayer and contemplation. The music is unique and distinctive. Taizé chants featuring deceptively simple refrains that are repeated, mantra-like, by the gathered congregation, and occasionally, instrumental and vocal soloists add verses on top of the repeated refrains.

The music is accessible, participatory, and meditative.

All who attend are invited to sink into the experience, to pray, and to use the silence and meditative music as an opportunity to listen to the “still, small voice” within.

Come as you are and experience the peace.
