2020 was such a challenging year for the world, with the pandemic; racial violence, injustice, and unrest; a divisive election; and all the personal, professional, and social fallout from those things, including illness, job losses, restrictions on gathering, and churches not being able to worship in person. The attack on the Capitol left many of us shaken. We gather to pray for peace in our community, our country, and the world.
If you would like to sing along, here is the 2021 San Damiano Taize Prayer Service Worship Aid.
Special thanks to composer Carol Browning for sharing her outline, Fr. Michael Joncas for some of the prayer texts, Fr. Sam Nasada, OFM and Fr. Oscar Mendez, OFM for their support and assistance.
