“True growth comes as members of the community integrate into their hearts and minds the vision of the community. In that way they choose the community as it is and become responsible for it.” - Jean Vanier
What We Do
Members of Mamook Activity Center find meaningful work through volunteering in the wider Seattle Community, public speaking, and contributing to the L'Arche community by assisting with errands. Members express their creativity by making handmade L'Arche candles and cards in the activity center. We can also be seen exploring the city during fun and enriching outings.
About Our Candles
Every one of our unique candles is handmade in Mamook Activity Center by members of our community. Everyone works together as a team, each contributing their individual skills to create beautiful candles.
Our candles are made out of recycled wax donated to us by churches and friends of L'Arche. Most of our candles are sold at craft fairs or bazars; however, we also sell them directly from our workshop. We even take special orders, for any occasion.
