Taizé Prayer Service, Wednesday, December 3, 2014, 7:00-8:00pm
Daily Chapel of Holy Family Church
2323 Cheyenne St.
As preparation for Christmas and a peaceful oasis in the midst of a busy season, Holy Family offers a beautiful prayer service in the style of the
Taizé community in France. It is a unique way of praying for one hour in a candlelit environment that suggests a "glow of the Holy." Participants enter into the mystery of God through a mixture of repeated meditative song refrains, Scripture reading, prayers, and the language of God, silence.
The service is non-denominational/ecumenical in nature. It is a gift from Holy Family Parish for Christians who are awaiting with hope the Light who
will bring joy and love into our darkness. Bring a friend, and come experience this one peaceful hour of prayer.
Interested in Catholicism? RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) will be meeting every Monday at 7 PM in Anselm 230. For more information, please contact Denise Phillips at 972-721-5168.
