Deaf and Disability Ministries
Catholic Charities seeks to fully integrate persons with disabilities into the life of their faith communities.
We accomplish this by connecting those with disabilities to the resources available. We work with parishes to strengthen the spiritual, sacramental and pastoral experience. We work within faith communities, challenging them to progress beyond mere physical accommodations, to fully include the disabled.
