The summer Mariapolis is an event organized by the Focolare Movement and is characteristic of its spirit of unity. It is a gathering of people of all ages and backgrounds, spending a few days together putting into practice the universal values of the Christian Gospel.[more]
Many summer Mariapolises are held in a variety of settings, with different programs, yet each of these temporary “Cities of Mary” (hence the name Mariapolis) is a portion of society renewed by evangelical love. Cultural, racial, religious and generational differences disappear in this mosaic of humanity made one family by a common desire to live out the Golden Rule “Do to others as you would want done to you”.
Mariapolis is an occasion to gather with many and, in a dialogue of true openness, learn to be a gift for one another.
Mariapolises are held yearly in New York, Virginia, Florida, Indiana, Texas and California.
“We take home the courage and tools to live and communicate the language of love to everyone we meet.”
“The Mariapolis is ‘total immersion’ in learning the language of love for others!”
“I no longer feel alone – I am united with brothers and sisters all over the world who share my dream of universal brotherhood.”
“The experiences of young adults and married couples gave me the push to believe in God’s masterplan for me and my family.”
