This, year the GB Mariapolis is happening again online. You may remember last year’s online Mariapolis? It was a ‘first’ in many ways! For many of us it was a boost that was really needed at that time. One of the fruits was the start of online groups beyond geographical borders (as, for example, the Dialogue Group) and these groups continue to meet regularly.[more]
What is a Mariapolis? It is an event organised by the Focolare Movement and is characteristic of its spirit: 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.
The main guideline for these gatherings, which take place in many countries throughout the world, is the ‘Golden Rule’, which invites us to do to others what we would like to be done to us.
It is an opportunity to experience what happens in day-to-day life when we have listening, gift of self and sharing as the basis for our relationships.
“History’s in the making if you dare” – the lines of a song which opened the first ‘virtual’ Mariapolis in Great Britain, held on Saturday 25th July. Many of the 400+ participants agreed at the end that this indeed had been a day like no other.[more]
This year, Mariapolis GB 2020 is happening online. All are welcome! Please join us for all or part of the day. Booking is essential. Watch this space – more details coming soon.[more]
