The Parish of Sandal Magna


Jean Vanier, the inspirational founder of the L'Arche movement, died on 7th May aged 90. There are now 147 L'Arche communities in 35 countries, where people of differing abilities live together as equals. Vanier said that living together helped him to appreciate two truths: first, that people with learning and other difficulties have a great deal to contribute; second, by living in a community with people of varying abilities, we open ourselves up to be challenged and to grow. L’Arche communities live out the words of Paul, who wrote, "When I am weak, then am I strong. "Inspired by one of Jean Vanier's l'Arche communities where they once lived, Jodie and Jackie Gabriel set up Possability at The Spring twenty years ago, a community of all abilities enjoying life together. Possability meets every month on a Friday evening at The Spring. Newcomers are welcome to join this beautiful community.
