Taizé, Iona music sung at St. Paul's

On June 9, congregants at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church sang music from two remarkable Christian communities – the Taizé Community in France and from the Iona Community in Scotland.

Both communities have long been pilgrimage destinations. Taizé is a Roman Catholic community, while Iona has its roots in the Presbyterian/Reformed tradition. A chant-like quality characterizes music from both.

During Communion, hymns from a third musical tradition – “praise music” – was featured.

The Journey to Adulthood Urban Adventure participants from St. Paul’s recently traveled to the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans, the section of the city most damaged by Hurricane Katrina. One crew painted the outside of a house, while another hung ceiling fans, tiled a bathtub and crawled underneath the house to install new plumbing.

In between, they prayed together and joined in worship at the only Episcopal Church in that section of the city, All Souls. Tammy Martin organized the trip.
