Small Religious Communities for Individuals with Down Syndrome

The internet is always a mystery to me.  Somehow, my little post titled Down Syndrome, Dignity, and Abortion was seen by a parent whose son is involved in a fraternity, a life lived in communion, with other young men who have Down Syndrome!  It is based in France but is spreading to other countries as well.  The community's name is Fraternites Notre-Dame de l'Etiole (The Fraternity of Our Lady of the Star)If you click on that link you can watch a 5 min. video showing a day in these young men's lives as well as read a description of the fraternity in English.  I see something like this and all I can say is "Praise God!"
