Deadline approaches for Taize experience


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.
