Halloween Fun!

Halloween at L’Arche is always a big celebration. Core Members and Assistants look forward to dressing up, decorating pumpkins, and a L’Arche tradition: Jen’s homemade chili!

This year’s celebration was held at the St. Monica Church pavilion. Due to the risks associated with large gatherings, each house arrived at a different time to show off their costumes, take some photos and pick up their goodies. Each year, we are always blown away with the creativity of our community. We had a Coffee Barista, Santa’s Helper, a L’Arche Boat, a taco, and so many more fun costumes. Agape House even decorated their van for the drive over!

Below are some photos from the party! To enlarge photo and view caption, click on each image.

We had such a fun time! We would like to thank St. Monica Church for allowing us to use their space for our celebration. Thank you!
