Prayer Contacts

In the USA, there are countless groups that meet regularly for prayer, inspired by Taizé. Since the pilgrimage of trust on earth is not a movement, no one has a list of all of these prayers. Here are some contacts in different cities who may be familiar with prayers in the area. We have included a few established prayers that are personally known to some of the Taizé brothers. All of them are based on the songs from Taizé, Bible readings, with a time of silence and have a strong meditative character.
