Welcome to the Core Values Newsletter for November- December 2017. Our Core Value for this newsletter is Foster a Vibrant Community, and we will be exploring the theme of “togetherness.”

I have been lucky to experience togetherness in a new way over the last few months. Our Core Values Newsletter committee has grown to include seven members, all from different communities. Yet while their communities may be different, they all have a deep knowing of what we mean when we speak of “togetherness” and the ways that we live this in L'Arche. They have each reminded me that while our communities may be far from each other, we are indeed companions on the journey together.
As we enter the season of Advent, we invite you to reflect upon the theme of “togetherness.” What values do you see reflected in the community of shepherds and wise travellers that gathered around a little baby in a barn? What can they teach us about togetherness? What can we in turn teach about togetherness?

We have included new activities in this newsletter that we hope will bring you together to have some fun and be creative. Please send us your photos when you participate in activities from the newsletter together. We would love to include them in future issues. If you have any comments or would like to provide input or photos for future newsletters, please contact Elizabeth Nash at

Our upcoming newsletters will be:

  • January-February “Fulfill Your Role in Community”
  • March-April “Trust in God”
  • May-June “Open to Mutual Relationship”
