50th anniversary

50 years of Faith and Sharing

In 1968, Jean Vanier announced the Word in a retreat at Marylake, which led to the creation of Faith and Sharing.

To celebrate these 50 years, the activities will be carried out according to the initiatives of current or former participants of Faith and Sharing.
