Fulfill Your Role in Community
Theme: Teamwork

Welcome to the January, 2018 Core Values Newsletter. In this issue our Core Value is "Fulfill Your Role in Community" and our theme is Teamwork.

Pause for a moment to think about how many teams you are a part of in L'Arche. Some are formal, for example our leadership teams, house teams, or day program teams. But many are also informal. We work as teams together when we plan menus and grocery shop together in our homes, when we all do our part to welcome visitors to L'Arche events, or when we go out into our wider communities to speak about L'Arche. Where are some other places you are called to work as part of a team?

In this newsletter, we invite you to reflect on being a part of many teams in L'Arche, and to ask yourself, "How do I lead and work alongside others for the common good?"

We would like to offer a special thank you to the L'Arche Edmonton Day Program for completing and photographing this month's activities. We hope that you enjoy doing the activities with your teams as well, and invite you to send us photos when you do.

If you have any comments or would like to provide input or photos for future newsletters, please contact Elizabeth Nash at
