Taizé Community is an order based in Burgundy, France, with more than 100 brothers who come from Catholic and Protestant backgrounds in 30 different nations. It is a place of retreat and a popular pilgrimage destination. Taizé attracts more than 100,000 people a year who are seeking a place for prayer, study, communal work, and to make beautiful music together.
