We are trying to support the vulnerable Irish and Irish Australians in the broader community; they may be elderly and isolated; they may have lost a life partner; they may have a dependency which they cannot manage.
Irish people have a history of helping those less fortunate than themselves, and we are continuing that tradition. In the past help and assistance was provided on an ad hoc basis.

L'Arche is an international federation of communities founded by Jean Vanier that welcome people with intellectual disability.
L’Arche Brisbane is a small Community of two households and six Core Members. Peter is our Foundational Core Member and he has been joined by Jason, Anthony, Jenny, Sheena and Danny. These six people are truly at the heart of our Community; A Community whose members come from many backgrounds and experiences, each bringing to the Community richness and a sense of genuine friendship.
Since our beginning, we have been a Community that has had a strong faith and trust in God to lead us to be present to the vulnerable members in our society. We see in each other the “Light of Christ” and we bless each other with this greeting at our Community Gatherings as the candle is presented to each person in turn.
As a Community we recognize and celebrate diversity of tradition and culture within our existing membership and from people who may like to join us; be that by making a vocational choice to come and live alongside our Core Members for a period of time or to live out and be part of the life of L’Arche in Brisbane.
Both of our households are situated on the south side of Brisbane and provide a welcoming environment where there is time for a chat and an offer of a cuppa. Who knows you may even get to join Sheena in a game of Memory; or Danny in an Irish tune; or spend time with Jenny’s scrapbook; or Peter would love to chat about life in general; Anthony is always keen to talk about his latest work of drama that he is rehearsing; or Jason with his wicked sense of humor.Our History
For about 20 years a group of people began praying and working on building a L'Arche community in Brisbane. A driving force of this group was Pat McGowan who unfortunately did not live to see the fruits of her prayer and dreaming. Her spirit lives on in our Community and we are thankful that she is now able to intercede on our behalf in heaven.
The Friends of L'Arche Brisbane named the Foundation Community Leader, Catherine Carah on 17th March 2003. The Foundation Home “Tree Tops” situated in suburban Bardon continued to provide life in the Community until February 2008. Morningside household was opened in October 2003. In November 2003 we were accepted into the Federation of L'Arche as a probationary member.
In 2004 Friends of L’Arche Brisbane became known as L’Arche Brisbane.
Catherine Carah the Foundation Community Leader completed her mandate in 2008.
In November 2009 L’Arche Brisbane was accepted into the Federation of L’Arche as a permanent member.
Today L'Arche Brisbane has two households; one in Morningside and one in Alexandra Hills, supporting 6 core members and an active membership of Long-term and associates with a strong group of Friends of the Community.
