A gathering of friends in Monte Carlo at a celebration of the Bahá'í new year.

The Bahá’í Faith was first established in Monaco in 1954. Since that time, increasing numbers of people throughout the principality have been finding inspiration and guidance in the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh. Here, members of the Bahá’í community are working together with their neighbors and friends to promote and contribute to the well-being and progress of society; participating in a dynamic pattern of life and taking part in activities which are, at once, spiritual, social and educational.

So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth.

– Bahá’u’lláh

Many community building activities that address society’s needs in both their spiritual and material dimensions are underway in Monaco. Among the principles that inspire them are the oneness of humanity, the need for universal education and the elimination of all forms of prejudice. Around the world, the Bahá’ís and their growing numbers of friends offer opportunities to study and reflect upon spiritual topics, arrange meetings for communal worship, and provide classes for children and youth, emphasizing moral education.
