Three monastic brothers from Taize France have arrived in Chicago for a Pilgrimage of Trust at DePaul.

One of these brothers will be leadingTaize worship on February 29th at Good Shepherd, as part of ourWednesday worship. This Wednesday only worship will begin at 7am to accommodatethe leadership of the Taize brothers.

They will also be leading Taize worship atAscension on Friday, March 2nd.

These events are meant to promote themajor event.

 

We learned of this Pilgrimage of Trust throughRev. Barbara Berry-Bailey. I think that she was in France for a conference and was atthe press announcement of the tour. Someone said, “we have arepresentative from the ELCA here” and she became the contact personthrough serendipity. Barbara sent me a notice. She can be reached at: Barbara.Berry-Bailey@elca.org

 

Since the intention is to get anecumenical group of 18-35 year olds to DePaul for a weekend of prayer, thepromotional worship services are meant to serve a larger audience than justGood Shepherd and Ascension.

Thanks for passing on the info in spite of your previously stated disdain for ecumenical services. Fear not, your passive- aggressive resentment comes through loud and clear in your terse, abominably edited announcement, and omitting from the headline the most important term for the interested readership: 'Taize'.
