"The community started during the Second World War when the founder of the community, Brother Roger, arrived in Taize with the idea of gathering a small group of men coming from different countries , different cultures, from different churches to be a sign of communion. A sign of peace".

Currently, the Taizé Community has 100 religious members. Most live in the place where it was founded in France, but they are also in the slums of Brazil, Senegal, Kenya, Bangladesh and South Korea.

After Paris, Barcelona, ​​Prague or Budapest, this meeting comes to Rome, a city with a very special significance.  

Fr. David
Taizé Community

"So many Christians generation after generation have transmitted faith since the apostle. This place where giving so many have given their live for Christ, for faith. This place where the Church is alive for 2,000 years. It would be a important step in our pilgrimage of trust".

Alongside these religious are young people from different countries who have traveled to Rome in order to prepare everything and pray in the Basilica of St. John Lateran for all who participate in the event.

“For me it is very special because I think of how so many young people are going to pray with the Pope and that actually these youth are not only Catholics. We are all Christians. ButI think the kind of ecumenism there is going to be very clear.”

This is the 35th edition of the European Youth Meeting. It will be very much marked by the Year of Faith and is a foretaste of WYD Rio de Janeiro where of course the Taizé Community will participate.
