Living Stones at Taizé Basel


Between the 28th December 2017 and 1st January 2018, thousands of young people will gather for the European Taizé-Meeting, which will take place in Basel (Switzerland).

Living Stones will be also there! We are being officially invited to provide two workshops and to give visits/guided explanatations during any free time slots of the Taizé-meeting programme. It is a great honour to be able to offer our guided explanations in the two most important Protestant churches of Basel: Saint Peter and the Basler Münster. In the spirit of Tiazé, our participation will therefore be an important sign of ecumenism.

To register contact Marco Schmid at (mobile +41 (0)79 735 94 75) and not to the official registration of Taizé!! The deadline of registration is 1 December 2017.
