On Friday, August 8, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. the Diocese of Orlando will host a Ministry Professionals Gathering exclusively for Clergy and Lay Ecclesial Ministers on the topic of Catechesis for People with Disabilities. In recent years our parishes have seen an increase in the number of persons with special needs that need pastoral care, catechesis, and sacramental preparation. Careful consideration must be given to tending to the needs of people with disabilities and their families. Parishes must be equipped to welcome and involve everyone who wants to know and foster a relationship with Jesus Christ through the Roman Catholic Church, including those with disabilities.
The cost of the event is $15.00 per person (includes lunch). The registration fee will be collected the day of the event and we will only be taking cash, checks or money orders payable to the Diocese of Orlando. Both events will be hosted at the Catholic Center at NorthView on the University of Central Florida campus (3925 Lockwood Blvd., Oviedo). Space is limited! Register online or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org, 407-246-4865.
