Home life is the cornerstone of L’Arche. The evening meal, birthdays and times of prayer are small but cherished celebrations that strengthen the bond between the six to eight people sharing each home. At L’Arche Daybreak we have eight homes located in ordinary neighborhoods in the suburban community of Richmond Hill, just north of the city of Toronto.
Many members of L’Arche Daybreak are connected to local churches that community members attend. Prayer is also an important part of each day. At the end of the day, the shared evening meal gives members the opportunity to come together and give thanks for the gifts of those around them.
