Taizé prayer is a form of meditation that is relatively new to MPC but draws on rich years of tradition elsewhere. Our hour-long Taizé service is typically held on the third Wednesday of every month, and the next will be on the third Wednesday of July: Wednesday, July 19th at 7pm.
If you are in search of spiritual refreshment in the midst of your busy life, come to a candlelight prayer service featuring Taizé songs. With a service of simple music, Scripture reading and silence, Taizé offers an inviting reverent space in which to find the quiet place within. The Taizé monastery was founded just after WWII in France, with a mission of reconciliation. The simple songs created by the monks offer a way for people of many nations and languages to pray together. They allow us to drop down from the busyness of our heads into the stillness of our hearts, and there to encounter the Holy.

Our central goal is to change our culture of materialism and violence to one of generosity, compassion, and cooperation. We believe that to heal and transform our world, we must work from a larger framework of meaning and purpose, with spiritual consciousness undergirding our efforts.
