21 members of L'Arche Inverness travelled to Canterbury last weekend to take part in L'Arche UK's 40th anniversary.
L'Arche members from all around the UK met for a weekend of remembering, celebrating and giving thanks for 40 great years together.
Therese Vanier who sadly passed away a few weeks prior to the event was acknowledged for her contribution to forming the particular identity of L’Arche in the United Kingdom.
Eileen Glass;Vice-International Leader, delivered a wonderful talk alongside readings from Ministers from around the UK. Fiona Smith; minister at Ness Bank Church in Inverness took part in the weekend and L'Arche Inverness were pleased to have her represent the community. She is pictured above.
There were gleaming smiles all around as the sun shined throughout the pilgrimage along the cobbled streets of Canterbury.
A community gathering will be held early September to share photos from the event.
Ideas have started blossoming in Inverness as we think about celebrating 40 years of L'Arche Inverness next year.
