What is Taizé prayer?

Taizé Prayer is evening prayer for all Christian faiths. It is a simple, meditative form of worship, calling us to dwell deeply on Christ's presence around and within us. Mantra songs (like "Jesus, Remember Me"), prayerful silence, and short readings guide the focus of the prayer in a candle-lit environment. Services at Creighton last about 30-40 minutes and typically include a volume of the St. John's Bible.

Taizé Prayer is named for the ecumenical Christian community formed in Taizé, France  during World War II. Today the Taizé community includes brothers from all Christian denominations, including Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox traditions.
