L’Arche Canada congratulates El Arca de México on their move to a new home in Mexico city. We are happy to provide financial support for this important, new chapter in the life of their community.

The Mexican community, El Arca de México, put its first roots down in the eastern part of Mexico City in Iztapalapa District, more than 30 years ago. The neighborhood was very welcoming towards the community and deep friendships with neighbours have grown up over the years.

However, during the last few years, we have had to recognise that the great local restrictions on the community’s potential for growth. The reason is twofold: a question around security, and an issue of difficult access due to heavy road traffic.

Thanks both to the generosity of donors and the hard work of the community members, El Arca de México (L’Arche Mexico) has now moved to a new house as of the start of January 2017. This is located in the region of Colonia San Pedro Martir in Delegacion Tlalpan, in the south-western suburbs of Mexico City.

The photos posted on their Facebook page bear witness to the joy and commitment of each, as they embrace this new exciting adventure. Their energy and talents knows no bounds! In this spirit, they are delighted to invite you into their new home, offering a joyful welcome to all-comers.
