Parish Patnership on Disability

The purpose of the Parish Partnership on Disability is to put into practice within our parish the 1978 Pastoral Statement of the US Catholic Bishops on People with Disabilities which states "Catholics with disabilities must be able to participate fully in the celcbrations and obligations of their faith and should be included within the total fabric of society." As a faith community, we must strive to be a welcoming community to all people. We must recognize and appreciate the contributions persons with disabilities can make to the Church's spiritual life.

Since this ministry is in the formative stages, we will be initially focusing on the accessibility of the church campus, assessing the needs of our parishioners who have differing abilities, develping and providing education to other ministries and the parish as a whole, and arranging transportion for our parishioners who need assistance in getting to Mass and other church functions. Membership in this ministry is open to anyone who wants to help create a more welcoming and inclusive atmosphere in our parish.
