Is a little city with a place for everyone. It is an experience of unity. The program includes general sessions on the spirituality of unity with multimedia presentations, sharing in small groups, seminars on various topics, moments of prayer and reflection, games and outdoor activities. There will be special programs for children and teens.
The Focolare Movement, founded by Chiara Lubich, came alive in wartime Europe in 1943, Trent, Italy. Born in the Catholic Church, it is present today in 182 nations with over 5 million people of all backgrounds and walks of life, who work for a more united world. Focolare means “hearth” or family “fireside”. It helps people focus their lives on the Gospel, striving towards the fulfillment of Jesus’ prayer to the Father: “May they all be one.” (Jn 17:21)
