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.
