Book Description

Feb. 15 2012
An Ark for the Poor, originally published in 1995, is a history of L’Arche. Jean Vanier himself revised this updated edition as he looks back on 47 years of L’Arche communities.Founded in 1964 in Trosly-Breuil, France, L’Arche communities can now be found worldwide. L’Arche is dedicated to the creation of faith-based day programs, support networks and homes for people with intellectual disabilities.Flowing through the book is the philosophy and spirituality of L’Arche, which has allowed it to grow from a humble home of three men to a worldwide organization operating in over 40 countries. Along with dates and events, readers will discover the spirit that keeps Vanier’s dream alive and thriving today. Jean Vanier, son of former Governor General of Canada Georges Vanier and Madame Pauline Vanier, is a Canadian Catholic philosopher, humanitarian and the founder of L'Arche, an international organization that creates communities where people with intellectual disabilities and those who assist them share life together. Jean continues to live in the first L’Arche community in Trosly-Breuil, France.
