In joining a Faith and Light community, little by little parents discover loyal friends who are there to support them and help them to recognize the particular gift their child has to offer to them, their family, friends, the parish, society and finally to the whole Church.
The objective of Faith and Light communities is to be close to parents and support them in their ordeal, to help them to see and to love their child just as God sees him and loves him. Through moments of friendship shared together, during the monthly gatherings, loyal bonds of friendship are created around the person with an intellectual disability, these ties are also maintained between times of the gathering. He is the one at the heart of the community. He is the one bringing people together and calling for unity, he is the one inciting treasures of imagination and compassion from friends in the community.
