Special Needs

Do you have a youth who has special needs and desire that they recieve Catechesis and the Sacraments? 

It is our aim to serve those with special needs and make accessible our formation programs and parish, so that looking outside of their very own parish is not necessary. 

Guidelines for the Celebration of the Sacraments with Persons with Disabilities

"It is essential that all forms of the liturgy be completely accessible to persons with disabilities, since these forms are the essence of the spiritual tie that binds the Christian community together. To exclude members of the parish from these celebrations of the life of the Church, even by passive omission, is to deny the reality of that community... Realistic provision must be made for persons with disabilities to participate fully in the Eucharist and other liturgical celesbrations such as the sacraments of reconciliations, confirmation, and annoiting of the sick"  (Pastoral Statement of U.S. Catholic Bishops on Persons with Disabilities, November 1978; revised 1989)
