Augustana pastors Richard Priggie and Kristen Glass Perez will lead students on a fun and inspirational seven-day trip to the Taize' community in France June 28-July 11, 2018.
There will be two identical informational sessions about the trip: 6:30-7:00 p.m. Dec. 4 in Olin 201; and 10:30-11:00 a.m. Dec. 7 in Olin 201.
The Taizé community is an ecumenical monastic order in Burgundy, France, of more than 100 brothers from Catholic and Protestant traditions, who come from many countries.
Every year, thousands of college students and other young adults from around the world come together for worship, singing, Bible study and conversation.
The Augustana group's time in Taizé will be preceded by two days in the provincial town of Cluny and will end with three days in Paris, including a side trip to the magnificent Gothic cathedral in Chartres.
The cost of the trip, including airfare, lodging, and food, is $3,000 per person. Augie Choice may be used to defray part of this cost. Because this trip is offered just once every three years, current first-year students are eligible to use their Augie Choice money for this purpose.
