Taizé Service at St. Saviour’s Parish on Friday, November 16 at 7 pm. The Taizé style of chant reflects both the simplicity of life of the abbey, and our community’s commitment to an all-embracing, ecumenical approach to ritual and prayer. The service moves gently, ebbing and flowing through its succession of chants, silent reflection, and the reading of scripture. Silence is key to the service, allowing us to be not only active in the voicing of our prayer, but contemplative in our openness to hear and experience the compassionate, forgiving Christ, whose image we see beckoning peace and reconciliation. Come experience another form of worship with members of the community.

St. Saviour’s is located at 41 Mt. Desert Street in Bar Harbor and is handicap accessible. See for more information.
