St. Mark's Episcopal Youth Community makes pilgrimage to France

From North Carolina-

The St. Mark’s Episcopal Youth Community has resumed the tradition of making a spiritual pilgrimage to the Taizé Monastery in France. During winter break this week, seven of St. Mark’s young adults were to spend two days in Paris and then venture to Taizé, in the heart of Burgundy, with a youth group from Christ Church in Bronxville, N.Y. Leading the group from St. Mark’s is Joshua Hill, director of children and youth ministries, accompanied by chaperones Erik Luchs and Katie Gojkovich.

“The kids will find this a memorable and transformative spiritual journey that will draw them into a global Christian community through singing, meditation, study, group reflection, chanting, and prayer with youth and monks from all over the world,” Hill said before the trip. “Though it may sound strange to them at first, our teens will return with a greater sense of who they are and what’s important in life.”
