Taizé Walk of Trust

Sunday, 28 May, 2017

The Taize Pilgrimage of Trust will be held this Memorial Day weekend at Saint Louis University.  Young adults from across North America will travel to St. Louis to join our city in prayer, workshops, presentations and discussion on building trust and discovering common ground.  Most of the weekend's events will be held at Busch Student Center and the Center for Global Citizenship. Incorporated into each day is the prayer of Taize.  The SLU community is welcome to attend any of the workshops, sessions and prayer times. 

The schedule of the weekend can be found here.

​ On Sunday at 1:45 p.m., a Walk of Trust for the city of St. Louis will begin at various Christian  churches, a synagogue, and Masjid Bilal, and will pass by the SLU clock-tower on the way to Chaifetz Arena. At 4:30 p.m., Archbishop Robert Carlson and the Rev. Starsky Wilson will address the group followed by an hour of Taize prayer.  All are welcome to participate in the Walk of Trust.

About the Taizé Community

The Taizé Community's base in France is home to approximately 100 monks - about half Catholic and half Anglican or Protestant - and was founded in 1940 as a place of reconciliation and peace helping Jews fleeing Nazi Germany and Nazi POWs. The community attracts thousands of young people from all over the world each year.
