Archbishop Charles J. Chaput celebrated Mass for persons with disabilities Saturday, March 23 at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul, Philadelphia. Persons with various types of mental or physical disabilities were represented in various roles through the Mass. After the Mass special awards were given to groups active in ministries to persons with disabilities.
They included the Catholic League of Persons with Disabilities, which plans and assists at liturgies and retreats for persons with disabilities, and the Our Lady of Confidence retreat at Malvern Retreat House, both of which are celebrating 50 years of service in the Archdiocese.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
