Daily Life

Our daily lives consist of doing “small things with great love.” We learn and grow through simple tasks such as cleaning, cooking, sharing meals, and, most importantly, being together. Much like any family, everyone has her or his  part. If a core member, for example, is unable to slice carrots, maybe she can put each sliced carrot into the pot. “Slow together,” we like to say, “is better than fast alone.”

Our community is a place of welcome where people are transformed by an intense experience of community, relationships, disability and difference. "To live with" is different from "to do for". It doesn't simply mean eating at the same table and sleeping under the same roof. It means that we create relationships of thanksgiving, truth and interdependence, that we listen to people with intellectual disability, that we recognise and marvel at their gifts, and particularly their openness to God.
