Taize Prayer

The Viatorian associates, brothers and priests invite the community to join them in a monthly Taize chant and quiet prayer.

Taize Prayer is held the second Wednesday of each month from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Province Center of the Clerics of St. Viator (1212 East Euclid, Arlington Heights, IL 60004).

Taize prayer refers to chants that praise God or plea for God's help. During Taize prayer evenings, the gathered crowd repeatedly sings each chant with the choir for several minutes, like a mantra. The repetition helps connect those gathered with God, while disconnecting them from life's stress.

Taize prayer originated with an ecumenical community of Christians in Taize, France, who gather daily to chant and meditate together.
