Taizé Prayer

Taizé is a contemporary form of worship with music, candlelight, lessons, prayers and silence making it an evening to remember.

Taizé music is beautiful, simple, repetitive chant sung as a prayer.  We appreciate the gifts and leadership of John Lehrack, St. Alban’s Music Director

This worship service originated in the 1940s in the small village of Taizé, which lies in the southern part of Burgundy, France, by a monk named Roger Louis Schutz-Marsauche. Since its founding, the practice has spread worldwide. Its peaceful, contemplative nature has drawn millions from all over the world to practice this kind of worship.

With the departure of John Lehrack as Music Director, the future of our Taizé services is uncertain.
