Vespers

During the Covid-19 shutdown, we are meeting for Vespers virtually. You can find login information in the calendar on our homepage.

We gather monthly for a Vespers service, on the second Wednesday of every month (September through June), at 7:30 pm. Vespers is modeled after the traditional Taizé worship service which uses silence, scripture, prayer, and repetitive singing of short chants and rounds to quiet the mind and promote deep meditation. The Taizé Community, an ecumenical monastic order in France, was founded in 1940 to promote peace and justice through prayer and meditation. This All Souls Vespers service mirrors Taizé-style attention to silence, holy words, prayer, and singing, but has also evolved to include other meditative traditions such as yogic singing and Buddhist chanting.
