Product Description

"If Jean Vanier is not a saint, no one is. He was well into his 30s before he found his true vocation, which was to develop group homes for people with disabilities. His first such home was begun in 1964 in Trosly-Breuil, France. Now there are over 125 L'Arche communities around the world,"---Christian Century. 305 pages, softcover. Paulist.

Publisher's Description

In 1964 an extraordinary man started an extraordinary project. Jean Vanier, an ex-naval officer, and son of a Governor General of Canada, bought a small house in a village to the north of Paris and invited three men with mental disabilities to share it with him. This was the beginning of l'Arche (The Ark), a special form of community where people who are often rejected and despised by this world can develop their potential to the fullest.
