Hello and welcome to the L’Arche Belfast Community’s blog, which we are launching along with our new website. We have experienced a lot of growth in the past two years, as we have expanded our work projects, opened another house, “The Hearth”, on the Ormeau Road, and welcomed more members into our midst. Our website is a reflection of this growth, and it will provide visitors with a better idea of what L’Arche Belfast is, and what it means to be part of a L’Arche community.
It is my hope that this blog will become the storybook of the Community, a place where anyone who is part of L’Arche Belfast can share their stories, photos, and experiences. As we move together through the many joys and challenges of living life together, it is the stories and shared experiences which unite us (and provide us with endless entertainment). So, L’Arche Belfast — I hand this blog over to you, and look forward to seeing the many chapters that follow.
