Faith and Light celebrates 40 years

40th anniversary logo



The official launch of the Faith and Light 40th anniversary celebrations will take place on 2 February, the day of the Festival of Light.

Meeting in Lourdes for their first Council meeting, the province coordinators received a banner with a design symbolising 40 years of the movement. But what does it mean?

The Faith and Light boat landed. It no longer remains in the water but on the land. The characters have also taken their leave. They have got off the boat and gone on a farandole to announce Faith and Light to the world in messengers of joy. They have left following Jesus, Light of the world!
Since that day, about fifty pilgrimages have been organized or will be launched until the end of 2012, bringing together nearly 17,000 messengers of joy.
