Taizé service embracing diversity in languages

On Tuesday 7th March at 7pm, we held our annual Taizé service in the school chapel. This quiet, reflective act of worship, centres around chants from the Taizé community in France, led by the Chapel Choir. The other defining feature of this service is the reading of bible passages in a range of different languages represented within our school.

They included the following readings:

John 1:1-5 Read in Polish by Julia Turzyńska

Psalm 67:3-4 Read in Welsh by Clara Spence

Isaiah 2:2,4 Read in Danish by Oliver Brigham

Galatians 3:27-28 Read in French by Mrs C. Walmsley, Headteacher

Revelation 21:22-24 Read in Spanish by Mrs K. Potter, Senior Leader

LITANY OF PRAISE Read in English by Mr M. Reynolds, Chaplain

BLESSING Ms K. Leong, Ordinand, Lancaster Priory

John 1:14 Read in Cantonese by Micah Lam

We were blessed to be able to celebrate with such diversity within the school community and were rewarded with Mrs Kelly’s excellent cakes afterwards!
