Prayers for the Protection of the Creation

Coinciding with the Paris Conference “COP21,” a prayer with the songs from Taizé will be held in Paris, on December 5 at 20h30, in the presence of Brother Alois and several other brothers. The community of Taizé proposes that all who wish should associate themselves with this event by organizing in their own locality a shared prayer for the Protection of the Creation, for example by using the form of celebration available on-line.

If such a prayer is taking place in your town, we can announce it on this page – just send the details to this address info2015
