Dear Friend,
Welcome to the first online newsletter of the Deaf and Disabilities Ministry of Catholic Charities of Kansas City-St. Joseph! On June 11, 2016, in Vatican City, Pope Francis spoke to several hundred persons with disabilities and their caregivers. On that day, he is quoted as saying:
“I have something, you have another, and together we have something
bigger and more beautiful. This is how we go forward.”
– Pope Francis
Therefore, in the spirit of that statement, we have named this newsletter Together.
With Together, we’ll be able to connect with you on a monthly basis. Through this publication, we’ll not only feature a person, organization, or event in the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, but we’ll keep you informed about upcoming events and resources. In this issue, we are featuring an interview with Robin Sizemore, who has been involved with Catholic Charities for over two decades. You can also enjoy our Resource Corner and list of upcoming events.
If you have any questions, or ideas for articles for the newsletter, please contact our office:
Lisa Wagner-Carollo at or (816) 659-8262.
We’re excited to begin this journey with you!
In Christ,
Lisa Wagner-Carollo
Deaf & Disabilities Ministries Coordinator

Department Supervisor
Please know that you are in our prayers as you continue to navigate the COVID-19 Crisis.
