| Dear , |
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!
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.
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.

Admission and refreshments, as always, are free. "If you build it,
they will come."

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!
