We will update this and other events we have planned with regard to COVID-19 and directives per the Norbertine Community of Santa Maria de la Vid Abbey.
Please know that we continue to pray for the health of you and those you love. Thank you for praying with us, spiritually, virtually, and in person!
Leave the noise of modern life behind for an evening of prayer! Build your relationship with Jesus Christ through song, Scripture, silence and contemplation with our virtual community! This is an ecumenical and interdenominational form of prayer. Taizé is a spirituality that is easy to experience and hard to describe. Invite your friends and family to join in.
If you pray with us via livestream, we encourage you to create your own sacred space as you seek to observe this hour of prayer. Bring out your own candles for the "Intercessions" portion of the service. The song lyrics will appear on the livestream, so feel free to sing and pray them along with us.
Taizé is served by the Norbertine Community’s Office of Christian Discipleship & Religious Vocation at Santa Maria de la Vid Abbey.
