Faith and Light was founded by Jean Vanier and Marie Helene Matthieu following a pilgrimage in Lourdes, France, to meet the needs of families of persons with intellectual disability. There are now 1,500 communities in 76 countries on five continents. In the Philippines, Jean Vanier while visiting the Little Sisters of Jesus, inspired a prayer group to start the first Faith and Light community in the country in 1984. Today Faith and Light is found in 12 parishes in Metro Manila.
