Access in Liturgy:
Making Liturgical Ministries
More Accessible to People with Disabilities

This webinar focuses on inclusion of persons with disabilities in the liturgical life of the Church. Liturgical ministers should reflect the cultural, ethnic, and economic diversity of the parish. They should also reflect the spectrum of disabilities found in any large community. Our presenters will look at the importance of parish leadership in assisting the faithful with disabilities in identifying and sharing their God-given gifts with others as the parish offers thanks and praise to God in its worship. They will also concentrate on the power of invitation to ensure that barriers of omission are removed and the rich gifts of all are accessed, assuring the community’s ability to reach its fullest potential.

Webinar DVD on Veterans

 Parish Support for Veterans: How Can We Help

 

Available on Amazon.com by clicking here.

This NCPD webinar examines the range of realities faced by veterans of war. It supplies tools for ministry, pastoral care and for parishes to provide support to them and to their families during deployment and following their veteran’s return from war, whether recently or in the past. What veterans see during war bludgeons their innocence and can bring wounds to their body, mind and spirit. Stress and added responsibilities to the spouse and children during deployments and following the return of their veteran can be very positively affected by the experience of a supportive parish community life and the grace of the Sacraments. The same is true for the veterans, themselves.

Webinar DVD: Prenatal Diagnosis

THREATS TO THE LIFE OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, PART1: PRENATAL DIAGNOSIS

 

Available on Amazon.com by clicking here.

 

This 1 ½ hour online training is on supporting families who receive a prenatal diagnosis of a disability or lethal condition.  As you may know, the abortion rate for these kinds of pregnancies is alarmingly high…up to 90% of mothers ultimately make a choice against life, including even Catholic women.  

A recent study showed that when support is provided to the expectant parents, the abortion rate drops significantly.  We know from experience that a priest, deacon, or pastoral staff member is generally the first person sought out following such a diagnosis. 

But oftentimes clergy and staff feel ill equipped to counsel these families and counter the technical and compelling language of the medical community.  This webinar will equip them to respond to these needs, and will provide an online toolkit with free downloadable resources with a faith-based framework.”
