With the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster and the United Church’s B.C. Conference,  the Archdiocese of Vancouver is bringing Taizé events led by Brother Emile of Taizé, France, to Vancouver. 

A learning workshop has already been held. Two upcoming events will be held at two churches, beginning with an all-day young adult Taizé conference at Christ Church Cathedral in Vancouver.

“It’s exciting we’re targeting young adults,” said Gerard Garcia, Parish Youth and Young Adult Ministry consultant for the Archdiocese of Vancouver. “We need more opportunities in Vancouver to reconnect young adults with their faith.” 

The event will take place this Saturday, Sept.  28, from 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Christ Church Anglican Cathedral, followed by the third event, an all-ages gathering at 7:30 p.m. at St. Andrews-Wesley United Church.
