L'Arche is a charity organization which provides care and advocates for those living with intellectual abilities. L’Arche Winnipeg was founded in 1973 by Sister Marie Paradis supported by a group of Blessed Sacrament Parishioners and fellow Winnipegers who felt inspired by L’Arche mission. The first L'Arche home was established behind our Parish Centre when the Oblate Sisters gave their home. Today there are six homes and Tova Cafe. For more info check out www.larchewinnipeg.org
Blessed Sacrament Parish continues to enjoy friendship with L'Arche and supports it's mission wholeheartedly. Enjoy some pictures from the 50th Anniversary service of thanksgiving and celebration!
