Organizational Statement of Faith


The Charter of L'Arche (extract) COMMUNITIES OF FAITH 1.1. L'Arche communities are communities of faith, rooted in prayer and trust in God. They seek to be guided by God and by their weakest members, through whom God's presence is revealed. Each community member is encouraged to discover and deepen his or her spiritual life and live it according to his or her particular faith and tradition. Those who have no religious affiliation are also welcomed and respected in their freedom of conscience. 1.2. Communities are either of one faith or inter-religious. Those which are Christian are either of one church or inter-denominational. Each community maintains links with the appropriate religious authorities and its members are integrated with local churches or other places of worship. 1.3. Communities recognize that they have an ecumenical vocation and a mission to work for unity.
