News & AnnouncementsTaize Representative on Campus... Brother John from Taize, France -- an ecumenical, international monastic community in central France -- will be on campus Feb. 11-12 to teach people more about Taize and to help plan an ecumenical retreat at Gustavus in Oct. 2001. During his visit, Brother John will attend the college's weekly Taize Worship Service at 10 p.m. Sunday in Christ Chapel. He will speak during the 10 a.m. Chapel service Monday. He will also be at 2 open houses: one from 12:45-2:15 p.m. Monday in the Presidents Dining Room of the Campus Center that is geared toward area pastors, musicians, lay people, and others; and one from 4:45-6 p.m. in Banquet Room C of the Campus Center that is for the campus community. About 100 brothers from different Christian backgrounds and from nations all over the world live in Taize. The community's mission is one of reconciliation -- reconciliation among Christians, nations, and people. Each year, thousands of young people from all over the world journey to Taize for week-long pilgrimages. Through the rhythms of worship, fellowship, discussion, and work, they reflect on their own faith lives. To learn more about Taize, visit the community's Web site. Taize Worship incorporates simple prayerful chants, silence, short scriptural readings, and prayer. The simplicity of the chants allows people from many different faith and national backgrounds to pray together. The silence allows time for personal prayer and reflection. While on campus Brother John will help plan the retreat "Taize 2001: We Are Called" scheduled for Oct. 12-14 at Gustavus. The retreat is geared toward young adults, from 10th grade through graduate school. The retreat is the first in a series of Minnesota-wide events involving brothers from Taize. In addition to visiting St. Peter, they will visit St. Cloud/Collegeville and the Twin Cities. For more information about the visit or the October events, contact Kari Lipke (firstname.lastname@example.org, x6077).
