Info Session

Andrew Oliver will share his personal story of how the ministry came to be. We'll discuss the many unwarranted fears and assumptions that people have about disability and how that often leads to segregation and loss of control for those with disabilities. It is through this deep reflection of the situations of devalued people that we can develop an understanding of Do For One and a relationship-centric model. Additionally, info sessions are a great place to connect with others who may be passionate or curious about serving this marginalized population. 

This session will include special guest Jerry Robinson! He will share about how he got from living at Willowbrook State School to a full life of inclusion in Brooklyn, NY.

Summer in the Forest
Mar
23
to Mar 30

Summer in the Forest

Summer in the Forest is a documentary film that explores the life and work of Catholic author and philosopher Jean Vanier. It traces Vanier’s activism and faith from wartime to present day and reveals to us the universal need for love, community and companionship. Like countless others, Philippe, Michel, Andre and Patrick were labelled “idiots”, locked away and forgotten in violent asylums until the 1960’s. The young philosopher Jean Vanier took a stand and secured their release – the first time in history that anyone had beaten the system. 

Together they created L’Arche, a community for people with disabilities, a commune at the edge of a beautiful forest near Paris. And with that, a quiet revolution was born.

Take a first look at the trailer for Summer in the Forest here

Summer in the Forest opens March 23rd 2018 at the Village East Cinema in New York – then
nationwide!
