MANILA, April 11, 2013—In line with the activities launched during the visit of the French Taizé Brothers to the Philippines this year, the Taizé community permanents in the country will gather for a retreat as part of their commitment to support the continuing ‘pilgrimage of trust on Earth’.
The Taize permanents are those those who have been sent to participate in the 3-month immersion in the life of the Taizé community in France.
Slated on April 26-28, the weekend retreat aims to provide support to permanents as they continue with their daily life and tasks in their respective communities and missions, and bring more people to discover the beauty of living in a filial relationship with God.
Organized by the CBCP’s Episcopal Commission on Youth (ECY), the weekend retreat is also open to other persons who have visited the Taizé community in France for short period of time.
ECY reminds registered participants to arrive at 1:00 p.m. on April 26, Friday, at the Betania Retreat House in N. Domingo Ave., Quezon City. The retreat will culminate about lunchtime on April 28, Sunday.
To register and get further details, email ECY at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at (02) 527-9567. (Jandel Posion)
