We are a community of over forty people who are committed to living the journey together. Traditionally L&#8217;Arche communities in Australia have been centred around households where folk with and without intellectual disability live together sharing daily life. Here in Melbourne we are living L&#8217;Arche in new ways:</span></div>

Here, the resident community offers hospitality and support to the members of our Community with an intellectual disability, their families and other folk who are part of our Community. This can take the form of people coming over for a coffee, a meal or a few nights stay.<o:p></o:p></font></span></p><div><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"> </font></div><p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt 36pt; text-indent: -18pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1;" class="MsoListParagraphCxSpMiddle"><span style="font-family: Symbol; mso-fareast-font-family: Symbol; mso-bidi-font-family: Symbol; mso-no-proof: yes;"><span style="mso-list: Ignore;"><font size="3">&#183;</font><span style='font: 7pt/normal "Times New Roman"; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;'>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span></span></span><span style='font-family: "Perpetua","serif"; mso-no-proof: yes;'><font size="3">We go to people&#8217;s homes to spend time with them when there is a need or sometimes just for fun!<o:p></o:p></font></span></p><div><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"> </font></div><p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt 36pt; text-indent: -18pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1;" class="MsoListParagraphCxSpMiddle"><span style="font-family: Symbol; mso-fareast-font-family: Symbol; mso-bidi-font-family: Symbol; mso-no-proof: yes;"><span style="mso-list: Ignore;"><font size="3">&#183;</font><span style='font: 7pt/normal "Times New Roman"; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;'>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </span></span></span><span style='font-family: "Perpetua","serif"; mso-no-proof: yes;'><font size="3">The whole Community gathers once a month at the local Uniting Church Hall. At these gatherings we spend time sharing stories, exploring a theme, praying and sharing a potluck meal. We&#8217;ve had poetry soir&#233;es, walked a labyrinth, watched the sunset on the beach, sung songs and danced. It is at our Gatherings that our whole community comes together.<o:p></o:p></font></span></p><div><font size="3" face="Times New Roman"> </font></div><p style="margin: 0cm 0cm 0pt 36pt; text-indent: -18pt; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1;" class="MsoListParagraphCxSpMiddle"><span style="font-family: Symbol; mso-fareast-font-family: Symbol; mso-bidi-font-family: Symbol; mso-no-proof: yes;"><span style="mso-list: Ignore;"><font size="3"></font></span></span>&nbsp;</p>
