What is Taizé prayer? Taizé prayer is a quiet simple way of prayer designed for people of all Christian traditions. These meditative candlelit services include simple chants sung repeatedly; rich silence; and prayers of praise and intercession.
History of Taizé: These prayer services emerge from an ecumenical community of monks in Taizé, France. Brother Roger, Taize’s founder, arrived in the village of Taizé, France in 1940. In the midst of World War II, he dreamed of creating a community where reconciliation was a daily reality. He began by giving shelter to refugees of the war, especially Jews. Brother Roger recognized that the search for reconciliation was within each individual as well as within the community. Initially, the Taizé founder lived alone, until brothers from various Protestant and Catholic backgrounds followed. Today, as an ecumenical monastic community, Taizé is a sign of reconciliation. People from around the world, especially young people, come to Taizé looking for meaning in their lives as they prepare for responsibilities in their own communities.
Brother Roger writes in Songs and Prayers from Taizé:
“In a technological society, there is a clear separation between prayer and work. When inner life and human solidarity appear to be in competition with one another, as if people had to choose between them, that opposition tears apart the very depths of the soul. Prayer is a serene force at work within human beings, stirring transforming, never allowing them to close their eyes in the face of evil. From it we draw the energy to wage other struggles.”
During this Lenten season, be renewed by God through prayer, silence and searching. Taize prayer is a wonderful way to become more peaceful and centered amidst a busy life.

Do you have a daughter who is 10 to 12 years old? Help her learn about God’s wonderful plan for growing up and becoming a woman on Sunday March 16th from 2-5pm, at Nouvel Catholic Central High School in Saginaw. In a fun environment, we talk about the physical and emotional changes that occur during early adolescence, and help parents and their children communicate better about sexuality, fertility, dating, morality, love and marriage. Fertility is explained with humor and lots of love so the girls can know how special it is to be a woman and possibly a mother some day after marriage. A light luncheon is followed by the question and answer time which is always informative. The cost is $20.00 per family.
