L’Arche Brisbane is a small Community of two households where Peter as our Foundational member with disability has been joined by Jason, Anthony, Jenny, Sheena and Danny. We also have a number of members with disability who as they say “live L’Arche differently”. They live in their own homes but are loyal members of our community. All these people are truly at the heart of our Community; We are a community whose members come from many backgrounds and experiences, each bringing richness and a sense of genuine friendship to our relationships.
Since our beginning, we have been a Community that has had a strong faith and trust in God calling us to be present to the vulnerable members in our society. We see in each other the “Light of Christ” and we bless each other with this greeting at our Community Gatherings as the candle is presented to each person in turn.
As a Community we recognise and celebrate diversity of tradition and culture. Current and potential members make a vocational choice to come and live alongside our members with disability for a period of time or to live out and be part of the life of L’Arche in Brisbane.
Both of our households are situated on the south side of Brisbane. They provide a welcoming environment where there is time for a chat and an offer of a cuppa. You may even get to join Sheena in a game of Memory or Danny in an Irish tune. Jenny is always keen to share her scrapbook and Peter would love to chat about life in general.Anthony is always keen to talk about his latest work of drama or you could spend time with Jason and his wicked sense of humor.
