Taizé is going to be right here in Vancouver! Brother Emile, a member of the society, is visiting from France.

On Sept. 28, at Christ Church Cathedral, there will be a Young Adult Gathering from 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. At this assembly, there will be singing in a Taizé-style service followed by a talk from Brother Emile.

Also, at 7:30 p.m., a regional Taizé prayer service (all ages welcome) will be held at St. Andrew's-Wesley United Church.

Thousands of young adults all over the world participate in Taizé events. Founder Brother Roger described Taizé as "a community where kindness of heart and simplicity would be at the centre of everything."

The Catholic, Anglican, and United Churches are sponsoring the day's events. Anyone interested in coming should email:
