Description


What Is L'Arche? L'Arche Philosophy (In regards to lifestyle and relationships) L'Arche is a lifestyle and not a job, although there is work that needs to be done. We put our emphasis on mutual relationships and being with people, rather than just doing things for people. We try to live together as brothers and sisters and to share our lives with each other. We recognize that we all have our own disabilities and weaknesses. Therefore, we avoid the attitude of client/staff. In sharing our lives we learn that each of us has his/her own gifts. Ecumenical Nature of L'Arche L'Arche is an ecumenical community. As a community, we attend many different churches and have varied religious traditions. We celebrate the aspects of our spirituality that we have in common and try to be respectful of each others differences. We try to live our own tradition well and bring that richness to the whole community. If you are interested in living in community with people with and with out intellectual disabilities in a faith based environment this may be the place for your.

We are looking for people that are competent and understand that working at L'Arche is not just a "job" it is a faith based lifestyle that is open to people of all faiths.
