Christ commands that the good news of his love and salvation be proclaimed to all nations, and that mission includes those who experience physical or mental challenges.
In this set of articles from our partner Catholic News Service, we look more closely at efforts to instruct and mold persons with disabilities in the knowledge and love of Jesus.
Catechesis and persons with disabilities
Good faith formation accommodates those for whom the proclamation of the Gospel requires a fresh approach, so that each person within the body of Christ may be fully encountered.
Teaching children with disabilities about Christ
Every member of the body of Christ deserves to be fully formed in the faith, and a number of resources are available to ensure that all can be made aware of the love God has for each individual.
