Taize St Louis 2017

 

 

Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said, “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel,

‘Let my people go, so that they may celebrate a pilgrim feast to me in the wilderness.’”

Exodus 5:1

Attention Young Adults:  a very Short Pilgrimage

Since I was a teenager and first heard of it, I have wanted to visit a certain village in France.  Next Memorial Day Weekend, the Taizé Community is coming here!  And thousands of young people from all over America will be gathering in St. Louis.

WHAT IS THE PILGRIMAGE OF TRUST?     (A SIGN OF HOPE!)

The Pilgrimage of Trust is an event that is meant to bring together people of various backgrounds, whether that be socio-economic, racial, faith, or more.  Each day will be focused on the Common Prayer in the style of the Taizé community (morning, afternoon and evening) and will offer workshops in between the prayers.

The brothers of Taizé have been invited to help heal many of the obvious divisions that exist across our St. Louis community.  The brothers of Taizé have a unique charism of ecumenism and reconciliation that promotes an authentic encounter of the other, especially those who are different. It is this charism which we hope to incorporate into the weekend pilgrimage and the preparation events leading up to it.

While all are welcome at the Common Prayer times, the workshops will be primarily for young adults. These workshops will be offered on a variety of topics that can help foster a deeper understanding of one another and the core issues which often divide us. Workshops will also be offered focusing on areas that unite us, such as scripture, the search for beauty through art and music, service and more.

WHO IS IT FOR?

All are welcome at the Common Prayer times, however the workshops and breakout sessions will be primarily for young adults (those between the ages of 18-35).

These workshops will be offered on a variety of topics that can help foster a deeper understanding of one another and the core issues which often divide us. Workshops will also be offered focusing on areas that unite us, such as scripture, the search for beauty through art and music, service and more.

WHEN AND WHERE IS THE PILGRIMAGE OF TRUST?

Moses said, “We will go with our young and our old; we will go with our sons and daughters and with our flocks and herds, because we have the Lord’s pilgrim feast to celebrate.”

Exodus 10:9
