What is Taizé? Taizé is an ecumenical community in central France made up of Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox Christians. The community welcomes people, regardless of their faith, to join them in their rhythm of life and prayer. Each week, anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand young adults from all over the world journey to Taizé. They enter into the community’s rhythm, gathering together for Taizé’s unique style of worship and joining other young pilgrims for workshops, shared work, Bible study, meals, and relaxation. Cross-cultural relationship building is woven into the experience of prayer, work, and rest throughout the week.
Why go? Taizé is a special opportunity to step back from your ordinary life and experience God’s presence in community. At Taizé pilgrims find a welcoming place to be accepted just as you are alongside people from all over the world -- all listening for the Spirit of God. Through sung prayer, silence, and community, people often find a deep peace and simplicity that enriches their lives.
Who is invited? Young adults, from high school seniors to age 29, are welcome to join our group. Space is limited. The leader is Bobby Outterson-Murphy, Pastor of the United Ministry of Delhi. This will be his third trip to Taizé.
How much will it cost? We hope to limit individual cost to $400, which is 1/3 of the total $1,200. The Presbytery of Susquehanna Valley will cover 1/3 for a limited number of pilgrims. We anticipate that the last 1/3 will come from each participant’s local church and/or fundraising efforts.

Non-refundable deposits and registration forms are due by Dec. 31, 2017.
