A Taste of Taizé Feb 4, 2021

Fifth Sunday In Ordinary Time

Taizé is a tiny village in France.  Since 1940, it has been home to an ecumenical community of Brothers who pray very simply through chant.  During wartime, Br Roger established this community as a place of welcome for Jews who were fleeing the Nazis.  Taizé has always had a special solidarity with human suffering.  Taizé is, in itself, a symbol of hope and reconciliation.  The Brothers take special interest in the poor and in youth who flock to Taizé, up to 20,000 people at a time during the summer months, to reflect on their lives and join in the sung prayer.

Join in this beautiful prayer at OLR  church on Tuesday 2 March at 7pm. Sign-in will be available at the door.
