L’Arche: A community of Brokenness and Beauty

“Forty years ago in France, philosopher Jean Vanier [a Catholic] founded an international movement, L'Arche. The L'Arche community in Clinton, Iowa is part of this movement — people of faith living and worshipping alongside developmentally handicapped adults. There are now over 120 L'Arche communities in 18 countries. The community in Clinton is one of the oldest and most rural of the 14 American communities… a radically different faith community that confronts our assumptions about service and diversity, and the worth of individuals.”
