Living L’Arche: Celebrating 40 years

Living L’Arche: Celebrating 40 years


  1. I hope sometime soon we can get together so you can tell me about your meeting with Jean Vanier. The most amazing thing about this man for me is the way in which he opened himself up to the wisdom and love of Jesus - not by 'helping' the weak- but by allowing himself to be helped by them to recognize his own 'disabilities.'
    Just like messages from Jesus, Jean Vanier’s messages have life giving meaning in them which can be perceived with much more clarity by the ‘weaker ones out there’ and by the broken one hiding in each one of us.

  2. Larry: Meeting Jean Vanier and sharing a meal with him was a highlight of my life! Hopefully over the Christmas season I'll have the chance for a few consecutive days off at my cottage and we can share the memory. Perhaps we can find a time to get together then. I'd be happy to host you and Arden at my cottage - or it's easier, I can always come to where ever you are. (Pembroke or farm)

    Fr. Tim

  3. We will do that for sure then.I'd like you to see the farm.

Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders.

Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join

The May 2010 Euthanasia Prevention Coalition Newsletter can now be found at: Bill C-384 was soundly defeated by a vote of 228 to 59. Check how the Members of Parliament voted at: On June 5, 2010, we are co-hosting the US/Canda Push-Back Seminar at the Radisson Gateway Hotel at the Seattle/Tacoma Airport. The overwhelming defeat of Bill C-384 proved that we can Push-Back the euthanasia lobby in the US and Canada and convince people that euthanasia and assisted suicide are a dangerous public policy.
