Taize'

taize 11.15.17Taize' worship services are a partnership between Lawrence and All Saints Episcopal church. Taize' worship services are ecumenical Christian services that follow a rhythm of simple chants, silence, and scripture.  These meditative services take place in the candle-lit sanctuary.  Additionally, 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 those skills to become involved and engaged. 

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.

The services are either at The Center for Spiritual and Religious Life or All Saints Episcopal church.
Winter 2018 - dates TBD

Shabbat

Fridays at sundown
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

Fridays at the noon hour
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.
