These photos are of the first Taize in the Desert service held in June 2012.

Over Memorial Day weekend 2012 a group of 10 young adults from the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, many of whom came from our Norbertine parish Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, traveled on pilgrimage to Chicago. In Chicago they attended an international gathering, the "Pilgrimage of Trust", to experience the spirit of the Taizé community and the unique form of Christian prayer that has developed in this remote monastic community in France. The young adults stayed at the Norbertine Holy Spirit House of Studies in Chicago and were hosted by our seminarians. This group of pilgrims, upon returning to New Mexico, felt moved by the spirit to share their experience of solidarity, trust and hope in the contemplative atmosphere of prayer with their family of New Mexican Christians.
