Youth Pilgrimage to Taizé and Rome - February 2020
We are so excited to be partnering with Christ Church, Bronxville and Christ's Church, Rye on a Pilgrimage for High Schoolers to the ecumenical Taizé monastery in France. Taizé is Christian community with a specific mission to reach young people around the world. Coming to Taizé is to be invited to search for communion with God through community prayer, song, silence, personal reflection and sharing. Join us for this transformative experience!
Our travel dates will be Thursday, February 13th to Sunday, February 23rd. We'll be headed to Rome for the first few days before headed to Taizé on Monday, February 17th. Cost for the trip was $2,600 in 2019 and we expect it to be similar this year. St. John's is able to bring up to five youth on this trip. If you are worried about the cost, talk to us about making a fundraising plan and possible opportunities.
