Robert Ross's Arks Arrived!
On the last day of the Atlanta General Assembly in 2012, five small "travelling Arks" made by Robert Ross set sail for each continent. Robert was there with David Bishop, Mary Brown and Jessica Pollum to see them launched with the invitation to sail from community to community around the world and to arrive in Trosly in 2014 for the 50th Jubilee celebrations.
All five arrived safely!
The one that sailed round Latin America and the Caribbean arrived decorated with flags of each of their countries, images of Our Lady of Guadaloupe and Suyapa and full of other little images.
The Ark from North America was welcomed full of photos, drawings and messages on every deck! There is also a little book in which every community in Canada and the United States has drawn or written messages for Jean Vanier, Trosly and L'Arche.
"They are truly beautiful!" says Hazel Bradley. Hazel is overseeing the L’Arche 50th Jubliee celebrations.
