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.
