taize 11.15.17Taize' worship services on campus 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.

Spring 2018 - Taize' services for Spring term will be held at both All Saints Episcopal Church as well as at Center for Spiritual and Religious Life.
Taize' services also offered at other local churches.

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. 


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.
