Spanish youth travel to Calcutta to participate in inter-religious peace encounter

.- A group of young people from Valencia are traveling to Calcutta, India, to participate in an international gathering on world peace and inter-religious dialogue organized by the ecumenical Community of Taize.

The Spanish youth, who are involved in Taize prayer groups, will stay in the homes of Indian families and in schools in the area.  They will also visit Catholic organizations and communities, such as the home of the Missionaries of Charity, founded by Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, “in order to get to know the activities that they carry out in favor of peace and those most in need,” said Pablo Halcon in an interview with the AVAN news agency.

The main activities of the encounter will take place October 4-9 at Park Circus at the school of Don Bosco.  Brother Alois, the successor to the founder of Taize, the late Brother Roger, will be present at the encounter.

The Bishops’ Conference of India and the Archdiocese of Calcutta have collaborated with the Taize community in preparing the event. Calcutta was chosen as the host city “after a request by a group of the faithful” from that country who attended the funeral of Brother Roger in France last year.
