Taize' worship services are a partnership between Lawrence and All Saints Episcopal church. These uplifting worship opportunities are ecumenical Christian services that follow a rhythm of simple chants, silence, and scripture. Meditative and mindful, the setting is always a candle-lit sanctuary and Lawrence students are encouraged to use the Center's space to encourage their own Taize' practice.
The Office of Spiritual and Religious Life is regularly seeking students who can assist in being a part of the services. There is a musical component to Taize' that allows for students with singing and instrumental skills to become involved and engaged, whether your spiritual inclinations are in keeping with Christianity or fall within a different ideology.
If you are interested in learning more, please contact the Taize' interns. Other Lawrence students are involved in leading the services as well. All services are open to the public.

Shabbat marks the coming of rest and spiritual enrichment. It is celebrated on the seventh day of the week in accordance with the Jewish calendar. Light the Sabbath candles, enjoy challah and chant Kiddush over wine. Celebrate with Lawrence’s Hillel chapter and express 'Shabbat Shalom' to encourage sabbath peace.

Jumma is observed in honor of a holy day of the week, to bring about forgiveness, to be heard by Allah, and to make special prayers. It is a time for prayer within and for the community. The name Jumu`ah is derived from the Arabic Al-Jam’ which means 'to gather'. This Islamic congregational prayer is observed by Muslims around the world.
