ASIA/TAIWAN - Focolare Movement reaps fruits of 25 years of service and evangelisation

Monday, 24 May 2004

Taipei (Fides Service) - About 25 years ago the first small group of the Catholic church movement Focolare, started by Ms Chiara Lubich, was formed in Taiwan. In these 25 years the group has grown while offering tireless service to the local community, Catholic and non, showing a spirit of charity towards neighbour and bearing witness to faith in Christ. During recent celebrations to mark the 25th anniversary with the theme “Focolarini and New Evangelisation”, it was said that the fruits of evangelisation which have come of these years of service are all thanks to the grace of God and the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary who as Mother of the Church is the patroness of the Movement.
