When we no longer have the heart of a child who seeks to be an instrument of peace and unity, we either become discouraged or want to prove ourselves. How can we nourish this child's heart? Love can only feed on love. The only way to learn how to love is to love. When the love that is sacrifice begins to grow, words, gestures and flesh itself are permeated with gift and communion." - Jean Vanier, Community and Growth, p. 193
Eighth Annual L'Arche Dinner Sponsorship Opportunities: Planting For Our Future

Presenting sponsors will receive two tables at the auction (eight guests at each) as well as a priceless piece of art from (your choice) ark-maker Robert Ross, painter Erin Kinney, or a specially made group art project done on our annual retreat to the Grunwald Guild. To be present in the lives of our core members as they are present in ours is the essence of our work.
