TaizÉ Prayer Gathering
In The Historic Shalom Chapel

 

Monthly Musicians:
Jim Brimeyer, Sr. Carol Hemesath OSF, and Sr. Marie Therese Kalb OSF, with Guest Musicians.

 

 

1st Thursday Of Every Month,
7:00PM — 8:00PM:


July 5 — NO TAIZÉ
August — NO TAIZÉ


A characteristic trait of Taizé Prayer is the use of repetitive prayers set to simple musical lines. Repetition is not a new phenomenon nor unique to Taizé. The use of repetitive prayer has a long history in Christian spirituality and liturgy (think: the Rosary). What is unique to Taizé Prayer is the adaptation of the repetitive form to simple musical lines and core Biblical texts that can be sung by a whole assembly. The assembly is to immerse itself in the simple but profound harmonies and let itself be carried by this sung repetition prayer.

 

The other characteristic trait of Taizé Prayer worship is its use of silence. Shared silence is a very important dimension of Taizé Prayer worship. The use of silence in Taizé reminds us to incorporate more silence into our daily worship rather than filling every moment with words or music.

 

People of all faith traditions are invited.

 

Offering: Freewill

 

Registration Not Required

Centering Prayer Group

 

Facilitator: Marilyn Dansart

 

 

3rd Monday Of Every Month,
7:00PM — 8:00PM:

 

July 16
No August Meeting

 

Monthly Centering Prayer gatherings at Shalom begin with 20 minutes of quiet, wordless prayer together.

 

We then read together a short piece related to contemplative prayer, contemplative worship, or other topics on contemplative living, which is followed with time to share our thoughts and reflections regarding the reading.

 

Centering Prayer is much more about what God can do in us than what we can do for God.


Centering Prayer calls us to a spirit of openness and receptivity to God.

 

Newcomers to the Shalom Centering Prayer Group are always welcome.

 

Offering: Freewill

 

Registration Not Required

 

Marilyn completed a 3-year Spiritual Direction Preparation Program at the Franciscan Spirituality Center in La Crosse, WI in 2002.

David Haas will present a day-long retreat based on his newly released book, That You Might Have Life: Spiritual Practices for the Call to Holiness. “There is a stereotype that we must be depressed at Lent,” says Haas. “Lent is the Church’s springtime.

He has been a regular speaker at various national and international conferences for the National Association of Pastoral Musicians, the National Catholic Education Association, the Irish Church Music Association, the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry, the National Center for Pastoral Leadership, the National Association for Lay Ministry, the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership, the North American Forum on the Catechumenate, the Great Lakes Pastoral Ministry Gathering, the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress, the Chicago Festival of Faith, and the Big Island Liturgy and Arts Conference in Hilo, Hawaii.
