Meeting in Taizé on ecumenical dimension of synodal process

13 Jul 2022

From July 10 to 12, on the invitation of the Taizé Community, a meeting brought together representatives of several national youth ministry services and Catholic movements involved in ecumenism, as well as Protestant and Anglican Christians. The discussions focused on the question: how can the synodal pathway taking place in the Catholic Church become a powerful moment in the search for unity among Christians and the whole human family, and how can we encourage the involvement of young people in this process?

Among the participants who spoke were Sister Nathalie Becquart, xmcj, from the Synod Secretariat; Revd Father Hyacinthe Destivelle, op, from the Dicastery for Promoting Christian Unity; Revd João Chagas, from the Dicastery for the Laity, the Family and Life; Brother Alois, Prior of Taizé. These days allowed to walk together in great diversity and in hope for unity.
