There are many other groups and parishes in Canada where people pray in a meditative way, with plenty of silence and singing the songs from Taizé. No one has a list of all of these groups, for the “pilgrimage of trust is not a movement”. But sometimes it is possible to put people in touch with a group or parish in their region.
