THE TAIZÉ COMMUNITY 

TAIZÉ, FRANCE


The Taizé Community is an ecumenical monastic community founded by Brother Roger and located in the small village of Taizé, France. The Brothers are from twenty-five countries and from various Christian denominations. Together they seek to live a parable of community and reconciliation. For over forty years, Taizé has become a place of pilgrimage for tens of thousands of young adults from all over the world. At Taizé, they take part in weekly meetings that are organized by the community.

Taizé is well-known in the United States for its music (The Songs of Taizé) and style of prayer: a contemplative prayer made accessible to all. The Community regularly organizes huge gatherings for young adults in major European cities (Rome in 2012) and on other continents: Rwanda in 2012, Chicago in 2012, Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in 2013, and Austin, Dallas and Houston, Texas in 2014. These gatherings are part of a "Pilgrimage of Trust." Those who take part are invited to be bearers of trust and reconciliation in the places where they live, study and/or work.
