Taizé Prayer during COVID-19 Response

The Archdiocese of Omaha has suspended public gatherings in accordance with our governor's recommendation to limit gatherings to 10 people or fewer. Choirs and Taizé Prayer are suspended until further notice. For your personal prayer during this time, we invite you to pray with the video presentation above. You can also listen to a playlist of music in the style of Taizé, tune in to the livestream from the Taizé Community in France, or view previously livestreamed prayer services at the Newman Church in Dublin.

Please contact with any questions about music ministry at Creighton and St. John's during this time.


It can be difficult to set aside time to be quiet and present to the Lord with our busy schedules. We invite you to spend 30-40 minutes in meditative prayer, in which Christians of many denominations come together to pray. Everyone in the Creighton community and greater Omaha community is welcome, once per quarter!

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.
