New Adaptive Resources Available for Children with Special Needs

In their statement called Welcome and Justice for Persons with Disabilities: A Framework of Access and Inclusion, the United States Council of Catholic Bishops pointed out that:

  • "Catechetical programs should be accessible to persons with disabilities and open to their full, active                 and conscious participation, according to their capacity" (5)
  • "Catholics with disabilities have a right to participate in the sacraments as full functioning members of               the ecclesial community" (2)
  • "Parish sacramental celebrations should be accessible to persons with disabilities and open to their full,               active and conscious participation" (3)

Thanks to the generous assistance of Loyola Press, as well as training for our catechists to work with these materials, the Religious Education Program here at the Cathedral has expanded its curriculum to embrace a wider group of young parishioners.  We now have access to new resources which adapt lessons for children with special needs. For more information regarding these adaptive materials visit www.loyolapress.com, or contact Christine Pershey, Director of Faith Formation, at christine@straymond.net.

Interested in becoming a volunteer?  The Saint Raymond Religious Education Program has many opportunities for anyone who wishes to join this very important teaching ministry. Classes are held Monday evenings from 4:30 to 5:45pm (September to May).

Pope Francis has proclaimed 2015 a Year of Consecrated Life, starting on the First Sunday of Advent November 30, 2014 and ending on February 2, 2016, the World Day of Consecrated Life.

Religious life ought to promote growth in the church by way of attraction. The church must be attractive. Wake up the world! Be witnesses of a different way of doing things, of acting, of living! . . . It is this witness that I expect of you. Religious should be men and women who are able to wake the world up.         —Pope Francis, meeting with the Union of Superiors General, November 29, 2013
