Friends of Faith and Light Geelong

"Faith and Light gives to persons with an intellectual disability the possibility of being recognised as unique persons, and using their gifts and discovering the joy of friendship."

Faith and Light is a worldwide Christian community formed at Lourdes in 1971. Faith and Light communities enable people with a disability and their families, friends and other supporters to come together to share faith, food, fun, friendship and celebrate the gift of one another.

We hope to form a new Faith and Light community in Geelong, based at St Mary's Parish. Currently, we are working towards becoming an official part of the Faith and Life network, with the support and guidance of the regional Faith and Life leadership. Hence, for the time being, we are known as "Friends of Faith and Light Geelong".

The meetings are held from 1.30 pm to 4.00 pm in the Hibernian Hall, St Mary's Parish Offices (ground floor), 150 Yarra Street, Geelong.

In the current circumstances regarding COVID, it is important that those who attend RSVP prior to the meetings.

To do so, or to find out more about our group, please contact one of the Coordinators:
Tricia O'Keeffe: Mobile 0414 672 267.  Email
Kevin Mark: Mobile 0406 081 702.  Email

You can also learn more about the Faith and Light movement here.

Please keep the development of Faith and Light in Geelong in your prayers.
