Solidarity Lunch and Farewell

The Brisbane L'Arche Community gathered for its regular 'Solidarity Lunch" on Sunday July 11 at St Oliver Plunket's Hall in Cannon Hill. The Catholic Parish of Cannon Hill have been generous supporters of L'Arche Brisbane and we wish them blessings and joy on this day which is also their patronal feast.

Our solidarity lunch is an opportunity to share a simple meal and make a financial contribution to L'Arche Communities in developing countries.

The day was led by Stephanie Plummer who introduced us to her life in her home community of L'Arche Kansas. As well as showing the community some images from her home, Stephanie brought along her farewell gift of greetings and pics. We were also able to build our solidarity with the Community of L'Arche Bangalore, the home community of Dharmendra Kulkarni

A special presentation and blessing was given to Sameh Keller who has finished his time of service to our community and will return to his home country of Germany after touring a bit more of Australia. Sameh received a quilt with squares made by community members.
