The Focolare Movement
Takes as its inspiration Jesus’s prayer to the Father ‘May they all be one’ (John 17:21).
Over the last six decades the Movement has grown from a small community of around 500 in Trent, northern Italy, to a worldwide community of several hundred thousand people of all ages and backgrounds. It has also spread beyond the confines of the Roman Catholic Church, to many other Christian traditions, to other faiths and to people of goodwill who have no specific religious faith.
The Focolare Movement works to promote mutual understanding and respect through dialogue. This can take many forms, from the simple sharing of experiences between individuals, to large-scale international conferences. Whatever the level of the dialogue, the underlying principle is always love: which means openness to the other, getting to know them, and respecting them an their cultures and beliefs.
The Word of Life Group meets every 1st Thursday at 10 a.m. in the canteen.
