Taize Prayer Service on Nov. 1 Eve of All Souls Day

The Benedictine Sisters of Annunciation Monastery, Bismarck, invite the public to an ecumenical Taizé prayer service in the monastery chapel on the eve of All Soul’s Day, November 1 at 7:30 p.m.

Taizé prayer is a universal prayer of peace, hope, and healing. The service involves contemplation of God through chant, silence, and scripture.

“Taizé is truly a beautiful experience. The monastery chapel will be relatively dark and lit only by votive candles. Those who attend are invited to light a candle in memory of a loved one. The service will consist of repetitive chant, the Gospel for All Souls’ Day, prayer petitions for the deceased, and reflective silence,” says Sister Hannah Vanorny. “Our service will be dedicated to the souls of our loved ones who have died and also for those who are mourning their earthly presence.”

Those wishing to have their loved ones mentioned at this service may call Sister Hannah at 425-9734, comment on the Annunciation Monastery Facebook page, or email Sr. Hannah Vanorny at (hvanorny@gmail.com ).

All are welcome.
