Luminosa frontMariapolis Luminosa – one of 32 little cities of the Focolare Movement around the world, is the Focolare little city for North America, located in Hyde Park, New York, in the beautiful surroundings of the Hudson Valley.

In 1986, at its inauguration, Focolare founder Chiara Lubich wrote in a message: “This city of Mary could be the model of a new humanity where unity has become a reality.” Day after day this plan of unity is coming about. All year round, a great variety of gatherings is taking place at Luminosa for children, families, teenagers, youth, entrepreneurs, men and women religious and priests.

At Christmas time, Luminosa traditionally hosts a unique display of over 100 Nativity Scenes from all over the world.
