Welcoming Persons with Disabilities to Full Participation in the Sacraments

The Office for Divine Worship is committed to assisting parish communities in developing the means for full participation of persons with disabilities in the sacramental life of the Church. We offer our support to pastors, principals, directors of religious education, catechists, parents, and all those who work to ensure that persons with disabilities can live out their Baptismal Call according to their God-given talents and capacity.
