    Mass for People with Special Needs

    Faith in Action - Life Programs

    RESOURCES
    Celebrating a Mass for People with Special Needs can be the first of many steps toward integrating the disabled into regular weekly or even daily Mass – and more deeply into all of the sacraments and other aspects of parish life.

    A Higher Purpose

    Welcome individuals and families who might not  feel comfortable participating in a regularly scheduled Mass. Councils will sponsor a distinct Mass, conducted annually, for people with special needs.

    Overview

    People with special needs resulting from physical, emotional, mental or cognitive conditions are all around us in society, at school, at work, and in our families. It can be challenging for these important members of our society to participate in Mass due to physical and social barriers – or even family member anxiety. Celebrating a Mass for People with Special Needs can be the first of many steps toward integrating them into regular weekly or even daily Mass – and more deeply into all of the sacraments and other aspects of parish life. Holding this Mass sends the message that all of God’s children are welcome under the parish roof and that every person is an integral part of the parish family.
