The Emmanuel Community's vocation is to bear witness to God's presence in the world, his closeness and his love for each person.

It brings together lay people (married, single, consecrated in celibacy) and priests, who live in the heart of the world and put themselves together at the service of the mission of the Catholic Church through adoration, compassion and evangelisation.

the community



The Emmanuel Community is present throughout France and in more than 60 other countries around the world. Parishes, prayer groups, couples’ weekends etc..


In order to announce the good news of God's presence by adapting to the needs of the world, the Emmanuel Community has developed many proposals for couples and families, children, adolescents, young people, those who want to bear witness in professional life or serve the poor.
