The Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill invite the public to join them each month for an evening of Taize Prayer for Peace at the Queen of Peace Chapel in Doran Hall, 441 Mt. Thor Road, Greensburg, PA. Taize Prayer for Peace are scheduled from 7:00– 8:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month. Weather permitting, the service will begin in the Peace Garden, just outside the chapel. In the event of inclement weather, prayers will begin in the chapel. Participants should follow the signs to the gathering place.
Taize prayer is a simple but powerful prayer form that takes place in an evening candlelight setting. The prayer begins with the singing of soft, repetitive antiphons set to beautiful melody lines of elegant simplicity. The exquisite harmonies of the repetitive chants are interspersed with periods of silence, meditation, and prayers of praise and intercession. The rich worship experience of the Taize services will provide a wonderful opportunity for the community to unite hearts and hopes in prayer for peace.
