October 4-7, St. James Cathedral was privileged to welcome Brother John of Taiz, who led us in some days of prayer and renewal.  On Wednesday, October 4, the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, Brother John preached at the evening Mass.

After Mass, some 200 gathered in Cathedral Hall for a Simple Supper provided by the Family Kitchen.  Brother John talked about the Taize community, the vision of Brother Roger, and the changes the community had experienced since Brother Roger's death a year ago.

On Friday, October 6, Brother John joined our weekly ecumenical prayer with music from Taiz.  More than four hundred gathered for this prayer for peace and reconciliation.

On Saturday, October 7, young adults gathered with Brother John for an afternoon retreat and bible sharing at Seattle University.

Thank you, Brother John!  Thanks, too, to Brenda Bellamy, Campus Ministry at Seattle University and Seattle Pacific University, for their assistance in planning this event.  For more information, visit www.taize.fr!
