" Growing in love, the spirit of L’Arche is both profoundly human and profoundly divine. It is like a seed planted by God in the soil of our beings."
- Jean Vanier, Founder of L’Arche
For 45 years, L’Arche Erie has provided a family setting for our core members and assistants. Growth is at the heart of L’Arche Erie. We encourage our core members and members of our community to breakdown their barriers, open up, and grow in mind, body, and spirit. We live, work, pray, and celebrate together, sharing our joys and struggles as a family and GROWING community. With your help, we can create an environment to sustain growth!
