Taizé Prayer Around the Cross Join us for an hour of quiet contemplative sung prayer and silence – a quiet time and place to catch your breath and be re-connected to your God.

Sat 11 AM | Chapel

Taizé Baltimore

An hour of contemplative sung prayer and silence. A space to enter into silence with your God.Duffy Laws and Lisa O’Reilly are women of spirit and prayer, both living in Baltimore, MD. Duffy is a mother and grandmother, environmentalist and retired teacher who holds a Masters in Spiritual Ministry; Lisa is a teacher and has a Masters in Pastoral Ministry having worked for the Catholic Church for 15 years. Both know that silence and reconciliation are needed in our busy world and have found a space in the Community of Taizé, France, an ecumenical monastic community of brothers who welcome often 7000 young people in prayer. The community has developed a style of worship that brings all into a common space of peace and reflection. Using aspects from all the Christian rituals, including icons, scripture, chant and silence, Taizé Prayer around the Cross is a time for folks to rest in the still small voice of God.
