Coming to Taizè means being welcomed by a community that is inspired by two aims: seeking communion with God through prayer and being a leaven of peace and trust in the human family.

Through common prayer, singing, silence and personal reflection, a stay in Taizè can help us rediscover God’s presence in our lives to find inner peace and a renewed sense of purpose.

Taizé is a small town in the Burgundy region of France where a monastic community, founded in 1940 by Brother Roger Schütz, has been the focus of Christian pilgrimage worldwide. The community has become well-known through its simple, chant-like style of worship and prayer and is especially popular with young people, with over 100,000 making pilgrimages to Taizé every year for prayer, study and communal work.

Fr Alessandro Reno will lead a group of young people from our diocese to Taizé in August this year. They will embark on a ten-day trip from the
17 – 26 August to experience this unique and wonderfully spiritual community. The trip is open to young people aged between 15 and 35 years old (those under 18 should receive parental permission).

You can find out what goes on at the Taizé community on their website here and read about the history of the community here.
