Deadline approaches for Taize experience

3/3/2009

Most young people like to travel, and this summer they have an opportunity to visit France and grow in their faith.

Bishop Hope Morgan Ward will lead a group of young people on a spiritual journey to Taize, France in July. The trip is designed for those 19- to 29-years-old and departs from Jackson on July 23. In addition, a pre-trip retreat is scheduled for April 17-18 at Meridian Central United Methodist Church.

The experience at Taize is camp-like. Participants will be assigned to tents or rustic dormitories and will be expected to help with camp chores. The group will be in Taize for a week. In addition, time will be spent touring Parish.

Cost of the trip is $2,498 per person. Deadline for expressing interest in the trip is March 13.
