Focolare Easter Gathering in Belfast

A weekend to bring together people from all over Ireland to reflect on how we can built a culture of trust in our homes, local neighborhood, faith and civic communities and institutions. The setting in Belfast and the timing of marking 20 years of journey post Belfast/Good Friday Agreement is not just to reflect on peaceful progress but to create a confidence that together we personally can make a difference.

But above all the world needs dreamers who do.” (Sarah Ban Breathnach)

We come from different countries, different backgrounds, ages and faiths.
We dream about a world of tolerance, respect, harmony, brotherly love.
We’re doing a weekend in Belfast to build community together.

Would you like to join us?

During our week-end together we want to build a culture of trust and peace to bring back to our institutions, our local neighbourhoods, our homes, our faith communities.

We want to be a springboard for positive initiatives in local areas whereby people can work together to serve those who are most isolated, most on the margins of their communities.

Join us for a weekend of talks, personal testimonies and sharing on how we can all be dreamers and doers for our communities today.
