Every Sunday, members of Pentecostal faith Romani communities around Paris and its suburbs gather in La Courneuve camp to pray. Their church - built with the same material as their homes -offers almost fifty seats, men on one side, women and children on the other. A preacher leads every ceremony, along with a pastor and an orchestra. A few hours later, the ceremony comes to an end; each family goes back to its own camp.
This population lives every day with the fear of deportation. Some of them go back to Romania , others move out to a different camp.
