Letter of Jean



Since the beginnings of L’Arche (August 1964), Jean Vanier has always wanted to communicate what he was living, wishing to create a network of friendship and fraternity, focused on those who are most marginalized in our societies – people living with an intellectual disability.   Through circular letters, he also wanted to thank those who generously supported him in the adventure of L’Arche.

Many thanks Jean for your letter and happy birthday for your 86th birthday!

"Dear friends, so many of you wrote to me when my brother Benedict died, and again when my sister Therese died a month later. Thank you, thank you, for your love, your kindness and compassion." (read more)
