Four Canadian cities will host Taizé weekends in February-March 2006: Montreal (10-12 February), Quebec (17-19 February), Ottawa (24-26 February), Toronto (3-5 March). A brother of Taizé will lead the times of prayer, reflection. All of these gatherings, which are designed for young adults between the ages of 17 and 30, are part of the “pilgrimage of Trust” which the Taizé Community in France initiated more than 25 years ago.

In Canada, ecumenical meetings will take place in Montreal, Quebec, Ottawa and Toronto in February with Brother Émile. The program reflects the daily schedule of a visitor to the hill in Taizé and includes discussions, Gospel teaching, shared meals, and prayer with the unforgettable music of Taizé.

The Catholic youth offices in all four cities have invited the Taizé Community for these weekends. The weekend in Ottawa is in response to a joint invitation from the Catholic Youth Office and the Pastoral Office for Students at St. Paul’s University.
