A path of life and thought to be shared throughout the year, at all latitudes.
50 years after its founding, there will be, in 2017 various local events and initiatives in various countries worldwide. A roadmap of life and thought in various phases will highlight the anthropological and universal value of the family in the perspective of “universal brotherhood,” and testify to the richness of social and cultural diversity, together with the ideal of unity concretised in family life.
The central event will be held in Loppiano from 10 -12 March 2017.
About 800 people from all over the world are expected to attend. The families will immerse themselves fully in the reality of the international town of the Focolare, and bear witness to Chiara’s dream in all the continents.
In the morning there will be workshops for adults, youth, teenagers and children, held in collaboration with the parish movement, the gen3 and gen4 centres, the no-profit AFN and AMU. In the afternoon the meeting in the Auditorium will be aired via live streaming and will highlight the experts of family themes, who will be participating in the Cultural Seminar to be held at the Sophia University (10 -11 March 2017). This seminar with its characteristic universal outlook will give rise to the future Study Center on the family, with the objective of enhancing the contribution of the spirituality of unity to the family in the challenges it has to face today.
