All youth and young adults between the ages of 16 and 29 are invited to join a life-changing pilgrimage to Taizé, France, a place which is filled with deep Christian spirituality and broad ecumenism. This weeklong experience will be led by our own Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar!
Pastors are requested to identify pilgrims, and local churches of the New England Annual Conference are encouraged to pay the cost of the pilgrimage experience. This is a unique investment in spiritual development which will provide personal, church, and conference benefits for years to come.
NOTE: REGISTRATION DEADLINE EXTENDED - Reserve your spot now; see the Register Now button below!)
Discover an inner peace as you meet Jesus through simple living where He is waiting for you. Prayer, singing, Bible reflection, and sharing are some of the opportunities the Taizé experience provides to deepen the relationship between your faith and all aspects of your life. The pilgrimage will help to fulfill the mission of our Conference and churches—to make disciples for Jesus Christ who are committed to sharing the gospel, in word and deed, throughout the world.
Upon your arrival at Taizé, you are welcomed by a community of brothers who have made a lifelong commitment to follow Christ in simplicity of life. To better understand their commitment and learn more about the Taizé experience, go to www.taize.fr
We fly into Geneva, spend the night and take a bus to Taizé Sunday morning. In Taizé, we will either stay in dormitories or large tents, sleeping on bedrolls. Food, showers, and other accommodations are simple. There is no use of electrical appliances. Special diet requests can not be accommodated.
Daily routines include Bible study, worship, prayer, silence, workshops, reflection, faith sharing, camp chores, and fellowship with 5,000 pilgrims from around the world.
