Our Spiritual Life

Our Spiritual Life

Prayer is central to living L'Arche. We are an ecumenical community centered in our faith in God and the importance of prayer.  We pray together daily in our homes, and all the homes gather with friends for prayer each Tuesday night.

Once a month before Tuesday night prayer, we have a Potluck supper, where all the homes, family and friends of the community gather. 

Prayer of L'Arche

Oh Father, we ask you to bless us and keep us in your love.
May L'Arche be a true home, where the poor in spirit may find life.
A place where those who are suffering may find comfort and peace.

Lord, give us hearts that are open; hearts that are humble and gentle,
So we may welcome those you send with tenderness and compassion.
Give us hearts full of mercy, that we may love and serve.
And where discord is found, may we be able to heal and bring peace.
And see in the one who is suffering, the living presence of your son.

Lord through the hands of your little ones, we ask you to bless us,
Through the eyes of those who are rejected, we ask you to smile on us.
Lord, grant freedom and fellowship and unity to all the world,
And on the day of your coming, welcome all people into your kingdom.
