Tuesday Mar 16
Parish / Community
Belonging: Ministry with Persons with Disabilities is offering a Zoom Workshop on “Creating a Sense of Belonging in Your Parish” on Tuesday, March 16, from 7-7:30 p.m.
March is Disabilities Awareness Month and we take this opportunity to discuss the importance of making our parish communities welcoming and accessible. Not all parishes will be able to provide every accommodation, but every parish can extend a sincere welcome and implement considerations that have little or no cost.
Both pastor and parents will share personal experiences and offer perspective on what it means to have individuals with disabilities and families feel connected to their parish. Best practices, effective strategies, intentionality, and how to advocate and communicate are crucial to consider in order to establish long-lasting and impactful change. A Q &A session will be offered at the end
We hope that you will join us. There is no fee but you must contact Allison Sturm to get the Zoom link
