“Insightful and practical…a book that needs to be read by every pastor and lay leader.” - JANICE L. BENTON, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, NATIONAL CATHOLIC PARTNERSHIP ON DISABILITY
Parishes can be proud of the strides they’re making in welcoming persons with disabilities. In fact, says Maureen Pratt, “I have never seen such good potential for persons with disabilities to be present and completely engaged in church life.”
So, what’s the next step? How do we bring this good potential to reality, both for the benefit of persons with disabilities and for the whole parish community?
In this important, ground-breaking book, filled with stories of her own life with often-disabling health conditions, Maureen Pratt sets out pastoral guidelines and practical steps covering evangelization, catechesis, participation, privacy issues, spiritual vocations, and much more.
Every parish, and every parish ministry will be enriched by the full participation of persons with disabilities, and this book shows the way.
