How we Build a Community

L’Abri has a spirit that becomes evident to everyone who comes aboard—a spirit of community.

Community activities such as the winter holiday party, games night, annual picnics are anticipated and enjoyed by residents and volunteers alike.

Each year we look forward to our annual August getaway,  a two night stay at Ile Saint-Bernard, where residents, some volunteers and staff have time for nature hikes, swims and yoga, while also enjoying just time to sit and talk and watch the beautiful sunsets. Community life is a pillar stone of L’Abri and a time we all cherish.

Building community is an integral part of our purpose. It flows from the long-term nature of relationships, the opportunities to gather, and the caring of individuals for one another.
