School of Community is a weekly moment of formation and fellowship offered to the public by Communion and Liberation, an Ecclesial Lay Movement in the Catholic Church. School of Community aims at being a true school which, through the reading and discussion of texts helps participants develop the awareness that the Catholic Christian Faith is a personal encounter with the Risen and Living Christ; and that it is this ongoing, continuous, “encounter with Christ” which enriches and gives new meaning to every aspect of life.
Communion and Liberation - which was recognized as an authentic charism by the Holy See in 1982 - was founded in Italy in 1954 by Msgr. Luigi Giussani and is currently present in 80 countries throughout the world and 100 cities in the United States. The name, Communion and Liberation, denotes the conviction that “communion” with Christ brings “liberation” of the human person.
The essence of the Communion and Liberation charism is twofold:
1) the proclamation that God became Man and the affirmation that this man, Jesus of Nazareth, who died and rose again, is a present reality whose visible sign is communion - that is to say, a united people led by the vicar of Christ,
2) the awareness that it is only in Jesus Christ that the deepest needs of the human heart are fulfilled. Communion and Liberation's mission is thus the education of its members toward Christian maturity and collaboration in the mission of the Church in all spheres of contemporary life.
