Breaking News: Prayer Service!

Please join us on at 7:00 pm on Friday, February 6th, 2009 for a prayer serve at the Catholic Worker! Dale will lead us in a Taizé-like format. Get your voices ready for singing!

We plan to host a prayer service like this once a week. We are still experimenting with the time, but Friday evenings look to be a strong possibility. It will start with a potluck and then go into the prayer. We may eventually have it in the church sanctuary of St. James the Less, especially if attendance demands it. For right now, we'll start by having it at the Catholic Worker.

Our service will include songs, prayers and meditations, loosely based on Taizé. If you are not familiar, Taizé is the name of a town in France where a large ecumenical monastic community resides. They are known for singing short refrains over and over, with each pass going deeper into the meaning of the music. You don't have to be a stellar musican to fully participate!

We apologize for the short notice, but we'd like to get started. We hope you can join us!
