Ministry with Persons with Disabilities

We assist parishes in opening their doors to welcome persons with disabilities, and their families, into the full life of the Church. Consultation and formation opportunities are available that promote lifelong faith formation, sacramental preparation and total parish access for every baptized Catholic. Strategies, best practices, and resources exist that support the inclusion of diverse learners. 

"Every parish should seek out its parishioners with cognitive, emotional and physical disabilities, support them with love and concern, and ensure that they have ready access to a catechetical program suited to their needs and abilities." - National Directory for Catechesis, 61.
