The East Longmeadow Ministerium (Methodist, Congregational, Catholic, Lutheran, Orthodox, and Episcopal Churches in town) are excited to offer a series of Lenten Taizé Services throughout these holy days of Lent.
Beginning on Wednesday, February 21st and concluding on Wednesday, March 21st area churches will welcome you to come and take part in Taizé prayer and worship.
Taizé is a style of chant which involves simple passages of scripture or prayers being repeated over and over again. In many ways, Taizé singing is deeply calming and meditative and can often help people sense deep peace and connect with God's presence. Additionally, Taizé services usually involve candles, candle lighting to signify prayers, icons (religious images which can help focus and direct the prayers of those gathered), and moments of silence.
The schedule for Wednesday Services, which begin at 7:00 p.m. and will last roughly 30 minutes, is as follows:
2/21 at the East Longmeadow United Methodist Church located at 215 Somers Rd.
2/28 at St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church located at 128 Maple St.
3/7 at St. Paul Lutheran Church located at 181 Elm St.
3/14 at St. Mark's Episcopal Church located at 1 Porter Rd.
3/21 at the First Congregational Church located on the Rotary.
All are welcome!
