Saint Mary of the Visitation Parish seeks to be an inclusive community where everyone feels welcome. In 2018 and 2019 It is our hope to begin to offer even more opportunities to individuals and families who have loved ones with special needs. In order for us to better understand the needs of families and individuals, we are gathering input from the community in advance of the renewal of our Special Friends program.
Special Friends is an existing program at the parish. It is meant to help children with disabilities access the programs and ministries at the parish while growing in their friendship and knowledge of Christ in a safe and accepting environment, and empowering caregivers to do the same.
