The year of the Center’s 20th Celebration comes to a close on Friday 2, 2017. Our evening will begin in Our Lady of Angels Chapel with Taize Prayer, led by Brother John of Taize, a native of Philadelphia who entered the Taize Community in Taize, Saone-et Loire, Burgundy. France. It is composed of more than one hundred brothers, from Catholic and Protestant traditions, who originate from about thirty countries across the world. With a focus on youth, this setting has become one of the world’s most important sites of Christian pilgrimage. Over 100,000 young people from around the world make pilgrimages to Taizé each year for prayer, Bible study, sharing, and communal work. Through the community’s ecumenical outlook, they are encouraged to live in the spirit of kindness, simplicity and reconciliation
Taize Prayer was an offering in our Center from its beginning. In October 200, we were fortunate to have Brother John lead Taize Prayer in our chapel. To close our 20th Anniversary Year, we invited Brother John to lead us in Prayer as we celebrate with gratitude. To this prayer we bring the needs our loved ones and our world that we may all be transformed by the love of Christ.
In gratitude to Brother John and to support his ministry, there will be a free will donation.
Following the program, there will light refreshments and the drawing for the 20th Anniversary Raffle.
