Mariapolis 2015

Held in a variety of settings, with different programs, Mariapolis, is an occasion to gather with many and, in a dialogue of true openness, learn to be a gift for one another. Here are the locations and dates for the 2015 Mariapolises.


Children and the real Christmas story

“Jesus is the greatest gift of all”: with this spirit, thousands of children throughout the world remind us that “Jesus has been dislodged,” and invite us to make him once again the focus of Christmas. In St. Peter’s Square on 20 December, there will be a Children’s Jubilee with the blessing of their statues of Baby Jesus.

Christmas 2014

“I wish everyone a Christmas full of gifts and joy, especially gifts from Heaven. With gratitude in my heart for this year that is ending, I would like 2015 to be “the year of the Yes!” ~ Maria Voce (Emmaus)
