It will come as no surprise that due to the COVID-19 crisis it will not be possible to gather together for Mariapolis this year. But we still want to come together.[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.
Our dream is to have an event which underlines the beauty of the European continent in all its diversity, where the richness of every culture emerges in the splendid tapestry that is Europe.[more]
‘May they all be one’ (Jn17:21) was the theme of a mini Mariapolis at Liverpool Hope University on 11th May attended by about 80 people from the North West of England.[more]
