WELCOME TO THE MARIAPOLIS MAFUA NDEM CHIARA LUBICH

Fontem is a small town situated in the South West province of Cameroun. The first little Town of the Focolare Movement in Africa.

“I already see rising up in this place a great city, a city which will be famous throughout the whole world -not so much for its material wealth – but because a light will shine from it that will illuminate everyone, that all will wish to posses.  It is a light that will spread forth from mutual love always kept alive among us in the name of God.”

Chiara Lubich, Fontem, 1969
