Lenten Crosier Taizé Prayer Around the Cross - Phoenix

Join the Crosier Community of Phoenix for their Taizé Prayer Around the Cross during the Lenten season. Taizé Prayer is a meditative, communal prayer that begins with the singing of simple and repetitive songs, without many words. The worship is quiet and reflective to create a prayerful environment that helps people draw closer to God and the place of the cross.

This style of prayer is one way the Crosiers express a communion with the crucified Christ, with people who suffer and are in need of healing, and with all those who gather. The focus of Taizé is on Christ and the cross, reconciliation, and prayers for the suffering throughout the world. The one-hour prayer will be held at various parishes throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area. Click here for dates and parish locatons. All are welcome!

The Association of the Companions of the Holy Cross is comprised of Catholic men and women, single and married, who wish to deepen their baptismal commitment through the inspiration of the Crosier way of life.

The Companions, a group connected with the Crosier Community of Phoenix, embrace fellowship with other Companions and Crosiers, establish a daily rhythm of prayer in the spirit of the liturgy, and provide acts of service in response to human and religious needs.

The Companion program began in 2008, and the first group of candidates made their commitment in March 2009. Since then, the association continues to grow under its second director, Fr. Stephan Bauer, osc. Companion life and service are guided by the Companion Constitutions, which were approved by the Crosier Order. The Constitutions are an inspirational document, naming the values of the Crosier tradition and providing guidance for living by them.
