L’Arche’s 50th Anniversary Celebration

June 2015
By Michael Richard

The Grand Finale of L’Arche’s 50th anniversary celebrations in the United States took place over the last weekend of May in image of l'arche 50th anniversaryWashington D.C. All eighteen American communities sent representatives – from our founding community of Erie, PA to our newest, Atlanta, GA.

L’Arche Irenicon sent over thirty of our members to the festivities and unveiled a significant change after thirty-two years in the federation… A new name! L’Arche Irenicon will hereafter be known as L’Arche Boston North.

While in D.C., our members enjoyed exploring the city’s many attractions and participated in L’Arche’s numerous events. We prayed, danced, sang and occasionally slept over four days at American University. And yes, we all got t-shirts.
