Taizé Prayer

Thursday, March 23rd at 7 pm

Taizé Prayer is based on the Evening Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours and is modeled on the style of prayer from the Taizé Community in France. The sanctuary is candle-lit and the music is repetitive and chant-like. Those who attend regularly find a profound peace and tranquility in this style of prayer. Everyone, regardless of one’s faith tradition, is welcome to this ecumenical prayer service. Learn more about Taizé: The Quieting Mystical Experience of TaizePrayer.

Praying the Rosary

Praying the Rosary is a powerful and beautiful meditation on the life of Jesus, as we ask our Blessed Mother Mary’s intercession for us. Join us in praying the Rosary on Tuesdays at 3:30 in person, or print out a visual guide with instructions for private prayer.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

St. Anselm’s Prayer Shawl Ministry, “The Common Threads”, provides prayer shawls, lap robes, and Baptismal blankets to those in our community and beyond. The act of wrapping another in a shawl knit of your own prayers and thoughts is not only a gift to the one receiving a shawl but for the creator of it as well. The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets the 3rd Saturday of the month. If you are interested in learning more, please call the rectory at 978-443-8981.
