Liturgy of the Hours

Morning Prayer (Lauds) and Evening Prayer (Vespers) are the two “hinges” of the Church’s Divine Office or Liturgy of the Hours. These prayers are composed of psalms and canticles, and also typically include a hymn, reading, and intercessory prayer. The Second Vatican Council emphasized that the Office is not exclusive to religious communities and the clergy, but is the prayer of the whole People of God, and encouraged parishes to foster the celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours, especially Morning and Evening Prayer.

At Saint Cecilia, we offer these liturgical celebrations regularly during the seasons of Advent/Christmas and Lent/Easter, as well as on certain feast days and occasions.
 

Taizé Ecumenical Prayer

Taizé Prayer is a meditative style of prayer practiced by the ecumenical community of brothers founded after World War II by Brother Roger in the small village of Taizé, France. Established as a parable of communion, the brothers’ mission is to pray for and work towards peace, reconciliation, and unity among divided peoples, especially Christians. The Prayer in the style of Taizé consists of the chanting of simple songs—often in several languages, scripture reading, and silence. To learn more, visit www.taize.fr.
