Assistants, core members, friends, and family share what brings them joy about L'Arche Chicago, and try to describe who we are in just one word!

We begin our sharing of L'Arche joy with our Community Leader, Mic. In this photo, Christianne holding his son Yonah at our annual retreat

Mic says, "One of the things about living in L'Arche that brings me joy is that it is a place of belonging for all.

If I had to describe our community in one word, I would say joyful."#larchechicago #larchejoy

Elbert shares: "One of the things about living in L'Arche that brings me joy...friends, peace and I’ve seen people come, and I’ve seen people go. I was the first one here in L’Arche Chicago.

If I had to describe our community in one word, I would say… peace."

This is a silly photo from Friendship House's vacation earlier this summer, making grumpy faces by their van!
