Sunday, December 7 and 21: Prayer Under the Oaks
We will gather in the front lawn at St. Hilary’s at 6:30 PM for prayer and fellowship. If you have a smartphone, please download the Daily Office App by Rev Christopher C. Richardson, but please join us even if you don’t. Bring a lawn chair.
Sunday, December 14: Taizé Service
We meet in the Sanctuary at 6:30 PM for Taizé service. Taizé is a monastic community located in Taizé, France, founded in the 1940s by a Swiss man named Roger Louis Schütz-Marsauche. Taizé worship service involves sung and chanted prayers, meditation, a period of silence, liturgical readings, and icons. There is no preaching. The prayers consist of “short chants, repeated again and again.”
