Welcome to Faith and Light Ireland

Group of people celebratingFaith and Light is an International Christian community movement bringing together people with a learning disability, their families, carers and friends.

It recognises that everyone has gifts to offer – the ability to welcome others with love and affection and a gift of Celebration.
The communities meet regularly to pray, to share and to celebrate together. Friendships are formed and groups link to share outings and pilgrimages. The most important thing is to meet and listen to the man, woman or child who is often marginalized in today’s society.
In this way we get to know each other and nobody is left out.

Faith and Light was founded in 1971 by Jean Vanier and Marie Helene Mathieu
