Message from Jean Vanier about L'Arche's 50th Anniversary
L'Arche is 50 years old! To be able to celebrate our Jubilee year is an amazing gift. When I welcomed Raphael and Philippe from a violent institution, little did I know that L'Arche would grow into the world wide network it is today. So many people over these years have come to L’Arche and discovered the deep value of people with intellectual disabilities, who if accepted, loved and honored have much to give to our world. Let us all go forward into the next 50 years with much hope and intentionality, growing but also deepening our vision and letting ourselves be continually transformed by the relationships we share in our communities so that we may become an ever more inspiring presence for our world.
