Our Community Nights

Come and see the beauty of community

Join L’Arche Chicago for community night on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30pm at Cornerstone Church in Oak Park. 


Mic, Noah, and Ron at a Community Night

We welcome our neighbors to our monthly Community Night, hosting 100s of new visitors each year. It is a time of neighborhood outreach and education; an opportunity to build friendships between people with and without disabilities in our neighborhood–a time of prayer, celebration, and fellowship.

The impact of L’Arche Chicago in our neighborhoods is two-fold:

  1. There is a strong, positive impact on the residents who are empowered to be fully integrated into their neighborhood and share their gifts.  

  2. There is a strong, positive impact on the people in the neighborhood, who have the opportunity to get to know individuals with intellectual disabilities. Research shows that exposure to people with disabilities is vital in combating pervasive prejudice and negative social representations.

We gather to bring together old friends and new. This is a time to celebrate together and to deepen who we are as L’Arche. We invite you to join us!

Come and see the beauty of mutual relationships, celebration, and belonging. We will have snacks, share time together, and grow in friendship!
