“Together | Gathering of the People of God” from 29 September – 1 October

The Taize Community in partnership with the Methodist Ecumenical Office Rome and 50 Christian communions, movements, and organizations are organizing a special weekend of prayer, learning, and service. Young people aged 18 to 35 from different European countries and from all Christian traditions are invited to come to Rome from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon for a weekend of sharing. They will be hosted by the parishes and communities of Rome and stay with local people. At the heart of this weekend of sharing will be an ecumenical prayer vigil in Rome on 30 September 2023, in the presence of Pope Francis and representatives of various churches. Open to all the People of God, this prayer together will include listening to the Word of God, praise and intercession, Taizé songs and silence – a strong sign of fellowship, unity and peace.
