The same Jesus who heard the cry for recognition from the disabled of Judea and Samaria two thousand years ago calls us, his followers, to embrace our responsibility to our own disabled brothers and sisters. (USCCB – Pastoral Statement of the U.S. Catholic Bishops on Persons with Disabilities)
The Archdiocese of San Antonio aims to further the spiritual, intellectual, moral, and physical development of every member of the Body of Christ. The Archdiocese reaches out to the disabled so that they can fully participate in the life of the parish, in worship services, recreational events and other activities. The Archdiocesan Ministry for Persons with Disabilities serves as an educational/informational resource to develop and advocate for the most vulnerable in our communities.
