Rite 1

The Church of the Holy Faith uses a traditional Anglo-Catholic style of worship following the Book of Common Prayer, Rite I for all services except the Taizé service on Tuesday evenings.

What is Taizé?

The Taizé form of worship uses calming music, candlelight and silence to promote an atmosphere of peaceful, meditative worship.

MDB_0619_CTaizé originated during World War II, in the town of the same name in the Burgundy region of France. What began as an effort by a Christian brother and sister team to hide and protect those fleeing the war later developed into a brotherhood of men devoted to a common life of service and great simplicity.

Song is one of the most essential elements of worship. In the Taizé prayer service, words are sung over many times, gradually penetrating the whole being, uniting prayer and daily life.  It becomes a way of listening to God.

The ecumenical Taizé form of worship is one that many Christian churches worldwide are adding to their service offerings.

Holy Faith’s Taizé-style healing liturgy with Holy Eucharist is offered every Tuesday at 6:00 pm in the church.  We hope you will join us in this gracious and beautiful worship of our Lord.
