NCPD Executive Director Janice Benton presenting a workshop during the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia.
"Countless parishes embrace and celebrate the inherent dignity and worth of every person. Such communities foster the growth in faith of all parishioners, including those with disabilities, calling forth their gifts in service and meaningful participation. Yet they still encounter fear, ignorance, and rejection all too often. This workshop explores these conflicting realities and the ways in which families and parish communities can be sources of mercy, safety, friendship, and support for one another."
