April 1 2023 Taizé event: Application

THEME: Jesus the Christ – Love in Action


We focus on Jesus’ journey to the Cross, via the procession on a donkey, the footwashing, the crucifixion and the power of non violent Love. We explore how Jesus upended traditional power relations, disarmed the powers of violence – showing us how to Love in Action and what that means for young people today.
