Taizé Prayer Service
St. Benedict Parish
165 Bethany Rd., Holmdel
St. Benedict Parish will host a Taizé Prayer service July 18 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the church located at 165 Bethany Rd. A Taizé prayer service incorporates periods of silence with meditative readings from Scripture, prayers of praise and intercession, and the frequent repetition of simple, contemporary chants based on the Psalms or other parts of Scripture. Short songs or chants, repeated over and over, create a meditative environment and express basic realities of faith which can be easily grasped by the mind and the heart. The result is to gradually move prayer from the head to the heart.
