Taizé Advent Prayer Service Wednesday, December 6, 2017, 7:00-8:00pm

Daily Chapel of Holy Family Church, 2323 Cheyenne St, Irving 75062

As “my soul in stillness waits” during the season of Advent, Holy Family Church offers a beautiful prayer service in the style of the Taizé community in France.  It is a unique way of praying for one hour in a candlelit environment that suggests a “glow of the Holy.”  Participants enter into the mystery of God through a mixture of repeated meditative song refrains, Scripture reading, prayers, and the language of God, silence.

The service is non-denominational/ecumenical in nature.  It is a gift from Holy Family Parish for Christians who are awaiting with hope the Light who will bring joy and love into our darkness. Bring a friend, and come, experience this one peaceful hour of prayer.
