TERRE HAUTE — St. Mary-of-the-Woods

May Taizé prayer service to focus on agriculture

Persons of all faiths are invited to join the Sisters of Providence and the greater faith community of the Wabash Valley for an ecumenical Taizé Prayer gathering from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Church of the Immaculate Conception at St. Mary-of-the-Woods.

The 2014 focus for Taizé is “Prayer for the Life of the World: To everything there is a season,” based on Ecclesiastes 3, and the May prayer will specifically focus on “Prayer for the needs of farmers and farmland.”

The service will incorporate a blessing of farmers and farmlands. Each year, White Violet Center for Eco-Justice, a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Providence, has taken time on May 15, the feast of Saint Isidore, the patron saint of farmers, to bless the farmlands at the Woods, and to pray for the needs of farmers and farmland everywhere. This year, that blessing will take place as part of the Taizé service itself.

Taizé is open to persons of all faith traditions, and is free to attend.

The hour-long service includes prayer, music, time for silence, spoken and silent prayers.t.
