Caritas

Our aim is to assist parishes to find and reach out to people with intellectual disabilities, and to help them to find a place at the heart of the parish.

Our work is guided by our chaplain, Father Michael Daley.

‘Our task is to translate Christ’s message of inclusion into practical action so that people with intellectual disabilities can participate fully in the life of the Church.’

 

So what is this practical action? Three main areas:

  • training through our ‘Symbols of Faith’ course
  • support and advice on liturgies for Inclusive Masses
  • spiritual and social events at parish level as well as international,  by joining the Diocese of Westminster’s pilgrimage to Lourdes every two years.

 

We also run regular Saturday Clubs in various parishes. See Events.
