    So this parish I've been thinking about joining here has a Taize Holy Hour either Friday or Saturday night that I was thinking of going to. But I see that the Taize community is essentially an ecumenical community of both Catholics and Protestants. Is there any controversy with Taize? I don't know much about it.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    There has been quite a bit of controversy but no more than we see in the Church overall imo. Not sure if it would be up your alley though. There is a big emphasis on ecumenism from what I’ve read. Not really a bad thing as long as ecumenism does not compromise the Faith we follow.

    This parish strikes me as leaning slightly towards traditional, given their newer building that is traditional and such. But I could be wrong. They're doing adoration from the end of the 9:15am Friday mass to 8:45am Saturday morning. I can't tell if the Taize Holy Hour is during that adoration or Saturday night, but at any rate it might not be too protestant-y.

    Prayer services can be ecumenical as long as nothing of the faith is denied or slighted. So Taize should be OK. Worse things happen all too often.

    Ah yes, I'm familiar with the type. A double-edged sword indeed, part of my issue with ecumenism but I suppose that's a discussion for another day. If it ends up a net positive for the Church then I'm all for it.

    I do live in a college town so maybe it's geared more towards that?

    Seems a plausible assumption.
