L'Arche
In l'Arche, people with and without learning disabilities share home life in ordinary houses, much like any families. Shopping, cooking, sharing a meal - through these simple daily things, people learn and grow. They become friends, part of a network of people sharing their lives together. Some may come from years of institutional care, others from families. Some may need more support than others. Some come because of their commitment to helping people with learning disabilities. Each seeks to live in a real home, as a responsible adult, in equal relationship with others.

Build a culture of vocation in the Church in England and Wales.
Promote the link between vocation and evangelisation.
Promote the calls to specific vocations, including marriage and single life, diocesan priesthood, permanent diaconate and consecrated life.
Support and encourage new ecclesial communities.
Recognise opportunities that arise in authentic experiences of the Gospel and engage in pastoral research into the "signs of the times".
The inspiration for the office has come from a Church document of 1997, In Verbo Tuo (New Vocations for a New Europe). This document presents us with a vision in which the whole Church is a community of "the called" that exists "to call".

The aim of the site is to promote the Prayer Eleven courses in particular, and prayer and Christian spirituality in general. Each course is/will be eleven weeks long.

Then later in 2010 it is my intention to produce a third course called Prayer Eleven for Pilgrims which will be much more about Christian spirituality than just prayer. All the Prayer Eleven courses will have a strong practical element. Jonathan Walker
