CARA Special Reports on Disabilities

To measure how the Catholic Church in the United States is taking up the Pope’s call to recognize the strength in weakness and to be transfigured by love, the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) was commissioned by Potomac Community Resources Inc., the National Catholic Partnership on Disability, the Department of Special Needs Ministries of the Archdiocese of Washington, and Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington to conduct a survey of whether and how Catholic parishes, dioceses, and Catholic Charities in the United States are including serving people with disabilities in their ministries. The report on the findings from the diocesan and Catholic Charities surveys has just been completed. A previous Special Report, issued in summer 2016, summarized the findings from the parish survey.

Both of these CARA Special Reports can be found by clicking here.
