Pastoral Care for Persons with Disabilities

St. John the Evangelist Parish seeks to ensure that all are invited and welcomed to share in the life of the parish. Our parish contact serves as a liaison between persons with disabilities, St. John the Evangelist Parish, and the Archdiocesan Department for Pastoral Care for Persons with Disabilities. Activities include welcoming persons with disabilities and their families into parish life and parish programs, assisting the pastor and parish staff in their ministries with people of all abilities, sensitizing and educating our parish to the needs and gifts of persons with disabilities, and making referrals to appropriate agencies such as Catholic Social Services or the Department for Pastoral Care for Persons with Disabilities. A Special Needs PREP class is available on Monday evenings. Homebound Instruction for Sacramental Preparation may also be arranged. Our Archdiocese provides consultation, training, information and support services on a continuing basis for the fulfillment of these responsibilities. All are Welcome!
