Evening Taizé service

WILMINGTON-  The community is invited to an evening Taizé service which includes a service of prayer, meditation, and song hosted by St. Mary’s in the Mountains Episcopal Church, 13 East Main Street, on Wednesday, June 27, at 6 pm.
Taizé, a small village in the Burgundy region of France, is the home of an ecumenical Christian order. Brother Roger first arrived in 1940 to help provide refuge for Jews fleeing the Nazis. He was called to found a community of Catholic and Protestant brothers to assist those affected by World War II. Their community offers reconciliation as a way of life, bringing together divided Christians and separated peoples. Drawing from many faith traditions, the Taizé prayer service of silence, music, scripture, and meditation has spread throughout the world. More than 100,000 people, especially youth, visit Taizé annually.
At an evening service in 2005, Brother Roger was stabbed by a deranged woman. Today, the brothers’ work continues both at Taizé and worldwide in their witness of love to poor and disadvantaged people.
