Taize comes to Montreal, April 27-29, 2007.
Exciting ecumenical news from Canada:
[T]he Taizé community (France) is organizing a gathering of young adults that will take place in Montréal from 27 to 29 April 2007. Participants, 17-35 year old [sic], will come from various regions in Canada and the U.S.A. They will be hosted by families and churches in Montreal.
The Montreal meeting is being held in collaboration with the Montreal Catholic Church Diocese, the Anglican Church and the United Church of Canada. This will be a new step in the "Pilgrimage of Trust on Earth". Brother Roger, founder of the Taizé community, launched this "pilgrimage" as a way of stimulating young people to be bearers of peace, trust and reconciliation in the places where they live.
A provisional programme of the weekend is available on the website: www.taizemontreal2007.ca
Brother Alois, Brother Roger's successor, will be present at the Montreal meeting and will address the participants each evening. During the meeting, there will be periods of prayer with Taizé songs alternated with moments of reflection and small group discussion.
College and church young adult groups will be especially interested in participating, although individuals can also register to attend. You can read about my trip to Taizé, France, in my sermon, "A vacation in Pentecost."
