A short video about the Community of Taizé: Taizé prayer is the creation of a monastic community in Taizé, France, founded in the 1940s by a Swiss man known as Brother Roger. The brothers are celibates who emphasize service and ecumenism, with particular focus on reconciliation between divided peoples and divided Christians. Brother Roger was especially interested in bringing Roman Catholics and Protestants together.

On June 21, the Office of the National Indigenous Anglican Archbishop hosted an online video liturgy to celebrate National Indigenous Day of Prayer. The video includes contributions from Indigenous Anglicans and non-Indigenous allies from coast to coast to coast. General Synod established the National Indigenous Day of Prayer on 21 June in the Calendar of the Anglican Church of Canada under the heading of Other Major Feasts That Take Precedence of a Sunday.

In 1955, Jacques Berthier was asked to compose music for the Taizé Community, then comprised of 20 brothers. In 1975, he was again asked to compose chants to be sung by the increasing numbers of young people visiting Taizé. In his life-time, he created a body of church music now utilized around the world. The chants of Taizé are meant to be repeated numerous times. To have the song repeat automatically, right click on the video and then click on "loop".
