L’arche Vermont Exploratory Gathering

August 25 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

L’ARCHE IN VERMONT? AN EXPLORATORY GATHERING AT ST. MICHAEL’S, SUNDAY 8/25 3-5 PM: St. Michael’s is hosting a gathering with members of the LArche Boston community and with Vermonters of all interests and abilities. The goal will be  to better understand LArche, to imagine what is possible in this state, and to discuss next steps. The journey to start a community takes years; this is an exploratory first step.  LArche communities “provide homes and workplaces where people with and without intellectual disabilities live and work together as peers, create inclusive communities of faith and friendship, and transform society through relationships that cross social boundaries” (www.larcheusa.org). Today, there are 147 member communities of L’Arche in 35 countries. For further background, read the article in the August issue of The Guardian, listen to Duncan’s June 16 sermon online, or contact him for more information, duncan@stmichaelsvermont.org
