Youth Pilgrimages

Taizé 2022

Each year the Diocese of Kerry coordinates an annual youth pilgrimage to Taizé in France.  Taizé is a popular site of pilgrimage for young Christians of all denominations.  Thousands of people between the ages of 18 and 30 travel here during the summer months to part-take in their faith programme.

This year we will travel from Sunday, June 26th and return on Sunday, July 3rd 2022.
