Jean Vanier died peacefully on May 7, 2019, in Paris, France surrounded by members of his family. He was 90 years old. His death is a great loss to his family, to the members of L'Arche and Faith and Light around the world (including the 29 communities and two projects of L'Arche in Canada), and to people everywhere touched by his vision of a more human society where each person - regardless of their age, abilities, or background - has a place and contributes their gifts.
In his last message, a few days ago, Jean said: I am deeply peaceful and trustful. I’m not sure what the future will be but God is good and whatever happens it will be the best. I am happy and give thanks for everything. My deepest love to each one of you.
