A spiritual journey from Calgary to France for young adults age 18-35

About this Event

Join us for a journey that transforms you, restores you, inspires you: the best 2 weeks of your life.

Taize is a Christian community which attracts thousands of young people every week, from all around the world. Many are Christian, and many don't know what they believe. Everyone is welcome at Taize.

Spend a week making friends with people from many different languages and cultures. Discover more about yourself, and explore what is most important to you. Meet a God of love and compassion in the beauty of silence and song.

Then spend 5 days with us in Paris, the most beautiful city in the world.

Afterward, if you want to travel on your own, we can offer flexible return dates on your ticket.

About the organizer:

The Rev. Clara King is an Anglican Priest in the Diocese of Calgary. She first went to Taizé as a very young adult in 2005 and has been back countless times. She's led or co-led pilgrimages to Taizé for youth, young adults and older adults; though young adults are her favourite group to take! She was a Permanent (live-in volunteer) at Taizé in 2007; went to the Taizé Meeting in Nairobi in 2008, and to the Taizé Meeting at Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota in 2012. In 2019 she organized for Brother Emile to come to Calgary - the first time the Brothers had been to Calgary since the 1970s. And now she's the coordinator for Taizé YYC, a monthly non-denominational Taizé prayer in Calgary which started in October 2019.
