Taize Prayer Around the Cross

The Sisters of the Holy Names at Villa Maria del Mar invite you to an evening of prayer every second Thursday of the month from 7:00 to 8:00pm in the Villa Maria del Mar Chapel. This hour long Taize style prayer includes chants, scripture and time for quiet reflection. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to come together and pray for our loved ones, our communities, our nation and our world. Please join us.
