Description & Services
Description of service(s) L'Arche consists of people with and without intellectual disabilities, creating home and places of belonging together. L'Arche Saint John operates a home (McKim House) where adults with intellectual disabilities and those who support them live together, sharing together in the responsibilities and celebrations of daily life. L'Arche Saint John also hosts a full time (Monday-Friday, 9:15-3:30) collaborative creative arts program, "Creative Connections," in Uptown Saint John. Creative Connections offers a joyful and supportive setting where people with a variety of abilities can develop their creativity, while sharing in an atmosphere of friendship. Additionally, L'Arche Saint John includes numerous friends and associate members who take part in our events and activities. 
 
We are ecumenical faith community belonging to the international federation of L'Arche communities founded by Jean Vanier. We are connected with 28 L'Arche communities across Canada and many others around the world. Our ecumenical Community Prayer service on Tuesdays at 7pm is open to friends and visitors. Internationally, L'Arche is a dynamic example of how people of differing intellectual capacity, background, religion, and culture can encounter one another to grow in understanding and friendship, valuing the irreplaceable contribution made by every person.
