Centenary of Chiara Lubich

Centenary of Chiara Lubich

The year 2020 marks the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Chiara Lubich, founder of the Focolare Movement and a charismatic figure of the 20th century who, through her thoughts and actions in favour of universal brotherhood and peace, has left a legacy spread across the globe.

The centenary provides an extraordinary opportunity not so much to remember Chiara Lubich with nostalgia, but to meet her today: through the thousands of people who strive for a more united and peaceful world by means of the economic, political and cultural movements born through her spirituality, such as the Economy of Communion, the Political Movement for Unity, and the hundreds of social, environmental and humanitarian projects which contribute to a more just and harmonious world.

In collaboration with other organizations and institutions, the Focolare Movement plans to celebrate Chiara Lubich through numerous initiatives and events happening around the world. This page contains a calendar of events, as well as news and other content allowing visitors to learn more about this extraordinary figure.
