From our friend Justin Lorenz:
Founded by Jean Vanier in France in 1964, L’Arche (French for “the Ark”) communities bear witness to the reality that persons with intellectual disabilities possess inherent qualities of welcome, wonderment, spirituality, and friendship. We make explicit the dignity of every human being by building inclusive communities of faith and friendship where people with and without intellectual disabilities share life together. There are now 146 communities within 35 countries striving to live out the L’Arche mission, vision, and spirituality. The folks living in the L’Arche St. Louis home will present on both the simplicity and significance of living L’Arche.
