Focolare Movement International Convention
The Focolare Movement is an international organization operating in 182 countries and which promotes the spirituality of unity. The organisation was founded in 1943 by Chiara Lubich in Trent, northern Italy. The word "Focolare" is Italian for "hearth" or "family fireside".
Focolares last international convention was in 2016 titled "Unity: a gift, a commitment and a point of arrival" (http://www.focolare.org/en/news/2015/12/18/castel-gandolfo-congresso-int...).
At its annual meeting in 2019, Focolare set priorities for 2020 for a new commitment in the field of human rights and justice, the centenary of Chiara Lubich and the next General Assembly of the Focolare Movement.
