Seminary unites Christians through Taizé prayer

St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary in Boynton Beach hosted a Taizé prayer service in honor of Week for Christian Unity, Jan. 23. The ecumenical community of Roman Catholic and Protestant monks in Taizé, France holds a strong devotion to peace and justice through prayer and meditation. Taizé music highlights simple phrases, usually lines from the Psalms or other pieces of scripture, repeated or sung in canon. Young people around the world find the Taizé charism particularly appealing, drawing thousands in pilgrimage and in prayer around the world each year. The seminary welcomed those of different Christian denominations to the Taizé prayer, including Bishop Peter Eaton of the Episcopal Diocese of Southeast Florida.
