Our Archdiocesan Special Religious Education effort assists parishes in establishing Inclusion Teams who work via evangelization and catechesis to include persons with disabilities in parish life.  Inclusion Teams  share methods, techniques and strategies to help all persons with disabilities’ gifts and talents be utilized and included in parish activities—including typical  catechetical sessions when appropriate.
