Growing our parishes: Prayer opportunities for individuals and families living with disabilities
Individuals living with disabilities have GRACE to share
Individuals with disabilities share their grace in their parishes in many ways: altar servers; lectors; Eucharistic ministers; ushers; greeters; and music ministries. Training is available.
Reconciliation in ASL and Deaf Mass is offered in the archdiocese in the fall, winter, spring, and summer following Eucharistic Congress along with our Deaf Track. (Link to EC). A monthly mass and social for deaf parishioners, family and friends is offered at The Catholic Church of the Transfiguration, Marietta. All are welcome.
Faith & Sharing archdiocesan mass and social is held twice a year, typically in the spring and fall. This is an inclusive mass. All are welcome to participate in this beautiful day. Check the calendar for more information.
Faith & Light communities are made up of persons with an intellectual disability, their families and friends, particularly young friends, who meet together on a regular basis in a Christian spirit, to share friendship, pray together, fiesta and celebrate life. The Catholic Church of Saint Ann in Marietta, and The Catholic Church of the Transfiguration, also in Marietta have active Faith & Light communities.
