Archdiocesan Mass for/with Persons with Disabilities

As someone interested in the inherent dignity of persons with disabilities, I was happy to see the post below on Fr. Joe's blog.

Archdiocesan Mass for/with Persons with Disabilities

Archbishop Donald Wuerl will celebrate a Mass with and for persons who have disabilities on Sunday, November 30, 2:00 p.m. at St. Mary of the Mills Church, 114 St. Mary’s Place, Laurel, MD 20707. The liturgy will honor the 30th anniversary of the Pastoral Statement of U.S. Catholic Bishops on Persons with Disabilities, which created a blueprint for a welcoming and inclusive Church. A reception and awards ceremony will follow. For more information, contact the Archdiocesan Office of Ministry for Persons with Disabilities at 301-853-4560. Sign language interpreted. St. Mary of the Mills is a fully accessible parish.

Hat tip to Father Joe.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
