The Vocation of Faith and Light

Faith and Light is a community movement. At the heart of these communities are people wounded in varying degrees by an intellectual disability These communities are not residential but rather communities whose members meet at regular intervals and create between themselves links which become deeper and deeper through the sharing of their difficulties and their hope: sharing times of festivity, prayer and Eucharistic celebration and or other spiritual times. These communities are usually made up of about 30 people consisting of family,. intellectually disabled and friends. Its other main concern is to integrate itself within the activities of society.

 A Community which meets

Each meeting includes a time of talking and listening to one another. The essential thing, is to form personal relationships within which we discover the suffering and the gifts of one another Sometimes the sharing is verbal, other times it is in the context of a Faith and Light activity. In this way we seek to carry one another's burdens, to encourage and support each other and to respond to the needs of each one. Through friendship made up of tenderness and fidelity, we become signs of the love of God for one another.

A Community of Celebration

From faithful friendship springs the joy characteristic of the Faith and Light Community It is God who calls us together and enables us to discover the covenant which unites us: we are no longer alone.

A Community of Prayer

  Jesus came to announce the Good News to the poor. We are all loved by the Father. Jesus gave his life for the flock. He feeds them with his body. That is why the personal meeting and celebration find their culmination in prayer, in union with God and the celebration of the Eucharist and/or other spiritual gatherings.
