Aslaug Espe, former coordinator, started Faith and Light in Norway in 1990, challenged by Jean Vanier.
The Follo-group was the first one to start, and now there are 10 groups: Follo, Lambertseter, Modum, Lillesand, Flekkefjord, Ål, Nedre Eiker, Kongsvinger, Nordstrand and Hammerfest. There is also one testgroup: Bø.
At the end of September 2014, Hammerfest celebrated that they have been accepted as a Faith and Light group. Some friends from two other groups joined them in this celebration, together with Helga, one of the vice coordinators.
Almost all the groups are located in the east and south east, except for Hammerfest, which is located in the north of the country.
During the summer camp 2015 we celebrated the twenty-fifth anniversary of Faith and Light in Norway.
