 Dear   ,    
 
Sometimes the number of ways in which the Holy Spirit moves in and through you all is absolutely amazing. We captured just a few of the celebrations and ministries in this edition of the blurb.

With much love,
Fr. Rob and Mo. Lyn



L'Arche Wavecrest Celebration 
Chris (and the rest of the Wavecrest community) is looking forward to seeing you there!

Chris

Woohoo, who knew! It has been 50 years since L'Arche began, and 10 years since Wavecrest began in Orange County. L'Arche is a ministry of Christian community for people with disabilities. L'Arche Wavecrest began as the dream of our own Karen Carr. She knew three things: 1. There was no L'Arche ministry available in all of the southwestern region of the United States. 2. There was a deep need for this kind of community among people with disabilities. 3. God had given her a dream of starting this ministry with Emmanuel as a founding and supporting church.

This Sunday we will be celebrating the dream fulfilled with Karen, the people of L'Arche Wavecrest, parents, friends, and supporters from around the region at the 10am service.

Michael and Pancake Wondrous Weekend on the Mountain

A number of the men of Emmanuel had a renewing and uplifting time at Verdugo Pines Retreat Center in Wrightwood. Just take a look at the giant pancake that Michael had to deal with. An outward and visible sign of the mammoth blessings bestowed on all of us. Thanks be to God!
