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.
