Faith & Sharing Retreat

L’Arche Jacksonville participated in the 2016 Faith & Sharing Retreat at Camp St. Johns in May. This week is a highlight of the summer season. Core members and assistants alike look forward to this faith-filled week. Core members Jack, Viva and Brenda served with Fr. Ron and Bishop Snyder at the closing mass!

Faith & Sharing, founded by Jean Vanier, is a sister movement to Faith and Light and L’Arche. Faith & Sharing are retreats and prayer days for persons with all disabilities and their friends and family members. The first Faith & Sharing retreat in this diocese was offered in 1982 and formed the roots of our current L’Arche Harbor House community.
