In Memoriam

Jean Vanier died peacefully on May 7 2019 in Paris, France surrounded by members of his family. He was 90 years old. His death is a great loss to his family, to the members of L'Arche and Faith and Light around the world (including the 29 communities and two projects of L'Arche in Canada), and to people everywhere touched by his vision of a more human society where each person - regardless of their age, abilities, or background - has a place and contributes their gifts.
