Arlene's Lighthouse is a small community which meets monthly to share friendship and faith. Our families have people with neuro-diversity (ie autism, Down's syndrome, etc). We seek to empower our kids, and share with them, and one another, our joy in the Good News of the gospel. During our meetings, we sing, we pray, we make crafts, we play games, and share a meal together. We invite you to join us, meet our kids, and make new friends!
We usually meet at the Holy Family House on the second Friday of the month at 6:00pm. Please check the bulletin for the announcement of the next meeting date. We hope to see you there.
On November 13, 2018, our dear friend Arlene Platten passed away. Arlene was a pioneer, and began the inclusion ministry at American Martyrs. The first ministry, "Josma" became transformed into " Circle of Friends", and finally into "Lighthouse". Today, we would like to honor her memory by changing the name of the ministry once more. Henceforth, it will be "Arlene's Lighthouse" to honor her memory , and to acknowledge the role she had in the creation and development of this ministry at American Martyrs.
We love you Arlene, and we will not forget all you have done for so many families of kids with special needs.
We hope to see you all next year, and again thank you, thank you, thank you.
