Building Community

Sister Pat Dowling: Using her Gifts to Teach Others at L'Arche

Sister Pat Dowling has spent over 20 years in ministry in two L'Arche communities in Honduras. Since 2003, she's used that experience in her ongoing visits to individuals who are challenged and also to train assistants who provide care and companionship to people with intellectual disabilities. She tells how the most important lesson for all of us to learn is that the people we 'help' are teaching us and bringing their own gifts, gifts that our society has great need for.
