Spread the word about the important impact of our community. Tell a friend about your experience of L'Arche Portland. Bring them along with you to an event (like our monthly Taizé prayer or our Annual Benefit Concert in October).
Invite us to speak at your church or with other groups
L’Arche community members are eager to tell our stories and to hear the stories of others. We welcome invitations to visit other groups or communities to explore questions about living with differences, love, brokenness, joy, pain, and more. Our Speakers Bureau is prepared to come and lead a dialogue around topics that we've learned about through 25 years of communal life, including Welcoming the Stranger, The Power of Vulnerability and Cooperation in Community. Whatever your group’s mission or history, if you care about these topics, or are simply curious to learn what L’Arche is all about, we would love the opportunity to visit with you so that we can learn from one another. For more information, please email
or call 503-251-6901.
