A Pilgrimage 
to  TaizĂ©

May 21 - June 2, 2015
(includes Chartres and Paris)

This trip is primarily created for those aged 17-29, though everyone is welcome. As you may know, the TaizĂ© community in France has become a gathering place for young adults from all over the world. In this setting, young Christians have an opportunity to meet the world Church, to develop life-long spiritual practices, and to reflect on their call to follow Christ. If you or someone you know has questions about the trip or would like to hear from a past participant, don't hesitate to email  bridget.holmstrom@abc-usa.org .
