WELCOME TO L'ARCHE LETHBRIDGE!
L’Arche Lethbridge (Alberta, Canada) provides an extraordinary opportunity for men and women from around the world with and without developmental disabilities to share, live, work, and learn together. Many local people participate in the life of our community as committed friends and respite workers. Sharing life with individuals with developmental disabilities at L’Arche is a counter-cultural life-style choice. It is a choice to share in the incredible gifts of individuals with developmental disabilities. L’Arche is a dynamic example of how people of very different abilities, cultures and religions can learn to live in peace. Together we discover depths of joy, freedom, and love, and the incredible beauty of each person regardless of intellectual capacity. If you think L'Arche is for you, and you would like to become part of our community please look at the drop down menu under BECOME INVOLVED to see the various ways you can participate.
# As I Am Take Care of You
What is meant by the word disability? For Raffaella Monteroso, from L’Arche Italy, it means when your father grows old and there’s nothing you can do but love him.
As L'Arche celebrates World Down Syndrome Day, we honor all those with Down Syndrome who, like Raffaella, are taking care of their aging parents.
