L’Arche Halifax is a faith-based community committed to living the vision and mission of L’Arche in the multi-cultural, multi-racial urban environment of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Toward that end, we are currently working toward:
- the foundation of L’Arche homes in the greater Halifax area,
- the establishment of work and activity programs in an environment that fosters personal growth, and
- the strengthening of our community through our Sunday gatherings and other social events.
We recognize that our mission calls us to be both a sign and an active presence in support of persons with disabilities in the greater Halifax area. Thus, we seek to provide practical support to allow for full participation in our community events, to build effective relationships with other groups who advocate for people with developmental disabilities, and to foster awareness of L’Arche in the wider community.
All are welcome to join us at our monthly gathering which takes place at St. Agnes Church hall on the second Sunday of the month, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. The hall is located on the corner of Mumford and Chebucto Roads, Halifax. Families, friends and all those interested in L’Arche community life are most welcome to join us for prayer, song, fun and fellowship.
