The Mariapolis Piero


The dream of many thinkers and pioneers with a strong philosophy or rich spirituality has been to build a town that puts these ideas into practice.

This was also true of Chiara Lubich. And as the years passed by, it has become a reality. It was like dreaming with open eyes, to build little “cities” where the only law is the new commandment of Jesus: “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another” (Jn 13:34)

Mariapolis Piero is one of 33 little cities of the Focolare Movement around the world.

During her visit to Kenya on May the 12th 1992, Chiara Lubich inaugurated the little town of Mariapolis Piero that she personally defined as “the centre, the heart, of all the Focolare Movement in Africa”.

 

Giving witness to the world of evangelical life holds the primacy and informs the daily life of its permanent inhabitants who come from many nations and different continents.
