Parish Contact Program
Currently, over 110 Parish Contacts act on behalf of persons with disabilities to assist the pastor in his role of inviting people to full membership and to share fully in the life of the Parish. Each contact is appointed by the Pastor to serve as a liaison between persons with disabilities and their parish and between the parish and the Department for Pastoral Care for Persons with Disabilities. If your parish does not have a parish contact or would like to appoint a new contact, please submit the PCPD Parish Contact Form.
