About

The Ministry with People with Disabilities builds community with families and individuals who live with varied disabilities to facilitate their active participation in all levels of our parish life. To that end, the ministry is always looking out for the needs of the most vulnerable members of our community. Five times a year, we celebrate life at the STARS events, the place to be if you enjoy good food, great company, and dancing.

We collaborate with our catechetical and liturgical staff to promote inclusive faith formation programs. The Mental Wellness Program is a forum for those who are affected by mental illness to come together with county professionals to raise awareness of this condition as well as therapy trends and effective strategies for coping. Once a year, we sponsor a retreat for caregivers to enjoy some respite and spiritual uplifting from their daily grind.
