Supporters of the L’Arche community in Adelaide first met in January 2013. We were drawn together by a common vision of seeing a faith-based L’Arche community home for adults with intellectual disability established in South Australia.

After this first meeting, the group continued to gather regularly – to share stories, pray, eat together, celebrate, and begin an ongoing journey towards understanding what it means to be a L’Arche community in SA.

In January 2015, we held our first community weekend at the Highgate Park chapel in Adelaide’s eastern suburbs. Approximately 24 people attended, including people from interstate L’Arche communities, gathering for community building, envisioning, fun and worship.

In recent months, the community has officially become an incorporated body under the banner of L’Arche Australia. We have also developed an interim board, and a mandate to guide us as we take tentative further steps on the road to community.

The community gathers together on the first Sunday of each month. All are welcome to attend the monthly gatherings.

We welcome new members. If you would like to become a member or supporter, or find out more, feel free to contact me on 0403 711 653 or ltwhitney@adam.com.au
