Providing for Disabilties

The information included here has been prepared for parishes by the Diocesan Committee on Accessibility for People with Disabilities. It explains what will enable people with disabilities to participate fully in your community. Read through the Frequently Asked Questions, (FAQs) to learn about the special needs of people with disabilities. Some accommodations (such as an accessible bathroom or elevator) are costly, but many (such as higher wattage light bulbs or large-print bulletins) have a minimal price tag.
