Regular prayers in Australia

Prayers with songs from Taizé exist in many places in Australia. We would hope that they be opportunities to gather young adults to let them deepen their faith in Christ and commitment in their Churches. The prayers appearing on this page are regular prayers known directly or indirectly to the brothers and which are in touch with the reality of the local Church in that area.

The "pilgrimage of trust on earth" is not a movement in the formal sense of the word at all. So no one has a list of "members". It is often possible, however, to put people in touch with others in their locality. Please feel free to contact us at community
