Faith and Light - a Prayer group for people with a developmental disability

Every person is endowed with the Spirit of God

We are Faith and Light

We are communities made up of persons with an intellectual disability, their families and friends, who meet together on a regular basis in a Christian spirit, to share friendship, pray together and celebrate life!
