L'Arche Christmas Market

LArche 400L’Arche Bendigo belongs to a worldwide Federation which was founded in France in 1964. L’Arche members work to create homes, programs and support networks for people with an intellectual disability. The community consists of people with and without an intellectual disability sharing and experiencing life together. L’Arche communities and networks are built on mutual relationships with trust in God being at the heart of the journey together.

L’Arche Bendigo was established in 2015 when the House of Welcome was officially opened in October. Three members with Intellectual disability now share life together in a home in Spring Gully. L’Arche also offers short stays to other community members in Flora Hill. Our House of Welcome in Kennington provides a place for Day Programs as well as office and administration space.

To support our communities a Christmas Market Fundraiser is held each year. This year our Market will be held at The Good Loaf. We are looking forward to a festive day, catching up with L’Arche friends and enjoying the variety of Christmas fare that will be on sale.
