St. John’s has been hosting Taize services in Petaluma on the first Friday of the month since 2009. These candlelit services of contemplative chant and song offer participants an alternative worship experience to the traditional Sunday morning church service. The Taize service is ecumenical, providing a quiet space for spiritual communion with no preaching, no doctrine, just a calm environment for meditation and for song led by a cantor to the melodious tones of piano and cello.

A donation of $10 is requested, but not mandatory.
