An event organised by the Focolare Movement in Ireland. The daylong event takes place on SATURDAY 27th JUNE 202O. Living in the uncertain times of Covid 19, the event is online, but we believe, notwithstanding this, it will be a moment of real joy and hope for us all as we contemplate how the light of Christ’s presence, promised in the gospel: ‘Where two or more are gathered in my name….
