Special Needs Ministry

Our mission is to create a loving, supportive and compassionate church community that renews and restores faith and hope to families and children living with special needs.

St. Patrick’s has recognized that for families who have children who live with special needs (physical, cognitive or emotional), bringing them to Mass may be a challenge. Our Special Needs Mass will be a place of understanding, acceptance and welcome. Children and adults with special needs may also be provided an opportunity to participate as Eucharistic ministers, readers, offertory presentation and other positions within the liturgy. Training will be provided for those who wish to participate.

The Special Needs Mass is held on Sundays at 5:00 p.m.

All are welcome and invited to this celebration of the Eucharist.
