Closing of 20th Anniversary with An Evening with the Brothers of Taize

Join us on Friday, June 2, 2017 for the last event of our 20th Anniversary Celebration.  Brother John of Taize lead us in an evening of Taize prayer from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM.  The cost is a free will offering.  Taize Prayer is a type of ecumenical prayer which includes song, readings and shared silence in an atmosphere of simplicity and tranquility.  To this prayer we bring the needs of our loved ones and our world that we may all be transformed by the love of Christ.

At the end of the event there will be refreshments and the drawing for the 20th Anniversary Fund-raising Raffle.  You won’t want to miss that.

Brother John of Taize is a native of Philadelphia, PA.  Brother John entered the Taize Community in France in 1974.  The Taize Community is an ecumenical monastic order in Taize, Saone-et-Loire, Burgundy, France.   The community has become one of the world’s most important sites of Christian pilgrimage.  Taize prayer includes songs, readings, and shared silence in an atmosphere of simplicity and tranquility.  In Taize, among other occupations, Brother John helps the young and not-so-young visitors enter into the world of the bible.  He spends part of his time in the United States and Italy to lead meetings and prayers with young adults.  He has written ten books, translated into several languages, on biblical topics.  The most recent is Friends in Christ: Paths to a New Understanding of Church (Orbis Books, 2012).
