We are hosting a week-long pilgrimage to the Taizé Community in the Burgundy region of France. The Taizé Community is made up of over 100 brothers from all Christian traditions, coming from around 30 different nations. Pilgrims who visit Taizé share this international flavor. Over the years, young adults have been coming to Taizé in ever-greater numbers; they come from every continent to take part in weekly meetings.
While in Taizé, participants will worship three times daily at the Church of the Resurrection, attend Bible studies and do chores as part of the community life of Taizé. We will share in the life and rhythms of a thriving ecumenical monastic community.
We will depart from Omaha on May 22, 2020, arriving in Paris, France, the morning of May 23, 2020. While in Paris, we will explore the Latin Quarter and tour Notre Dame. After spending the night in a Parisian Hotel, we will travel by high-speed train to the Burgundy Region, where after a short bus trip, we will arrive in the Taizé Community.
We will return to Omaha on June 1, having spent a full week (Sunday through Sunday) in Taizé.
The cost of this pilgrimage will be $725 + airfare (budget around $1500) and includes train tickets, hotels in Paris, lodging and meals while in Taizé. Meals to and from Taizé are not included in the registration fee.
