Together, Frances and I are excited to share some news. Through the leadership and support of dedicated community members, partners, and friends like you, we are celebrating the opening of a new home and our community’s increased ability to support friends who live outside of our homes. Frances and I are grateful for the ways that L’Arche Portland supports our friendship, and we ask for your support to make friendships like ours available to more people.
Although we are no longer providing Marilyn's professional support, we continue to be her L'Arche family and friends. We will support Marilyn's friendships and place in our community for life. In fact, Marilyn is now leading L’Arche Portland’s newest weekly gathering, Marilyn’s L’Arche Prayer Group, at her current residence. As Dorothy Coughlin recently shared, “Neither health nor distance or location or time can separate us from our love for Marilyn. The true lived spirit of L’Arche!“
During this holiday season we are grateful for your prayers and support of L’Arche Portland. Please remember that your support makes our new home possible. Your support makes Marilyn’s L’Arche Prayer Group possible. Join us today by financially supporting L’Arche Portland and make friendships for life a lived reality.
