RETREAT THEME

Do not forget to show hospitality, for by so doing some people have welcomed angels without knowing it. (Hebrews 13:2)

The pilgrimage of trust, an uninterrupted succession of meetings of young adults which began in Taizé several decades ago, continues today on all the continents. In each of these gatherings, one of the most memorable experiences is hospitality, both for the young participants and for those who open their doors to them. (excerpt of the 2019 letter from Taizé Brother Alois)
