Brother Roger was founder and Prior (director) of the religious brotherhood known as the Taizé Community in France.

He initiated efforts to aide orphans in the region surrounding the community, which led to the founding of the Council of Youth and then the Intercontinental Meetings of Young Adults, which annually bring tens of thousands of young adults from throughout the world to pray and reflect in Taizé.
