Persons With Disabilities

The purpose of the department for Pastoral Ministry with Persons with Disabilities is to affirm the Baptismal promise of individuals with disabilities to participate in the life and mission of the Church and the Church’s promise to support each person in this, by working on structures to support this at the parish level through collaboration with parish and archdiocesan leadership.

It does this through: Education, Advocacy, and Affirmation. It also seeks to support families on their faith journey.  This includes individuals with intellectual/developmental, learning, emotional, mobility and vision disabilities and mental illness.
