Persons With Disabilities

Contact Information Services Provided

We look to the future with what we feel is a realistic optimism. The Church has a tradition of ministry to people with disabilities, and this tradition will fuel the stronger, more broadly based efforts called for by contemporary circumstances.

With God's help and our own determination, the day will come when that right is realized in the lives of all people with disabilities. (Excerpt from "Pastoral Statements of U.S. Catholic Bishops")

The Office is funded by the Bishops Services Appeal, Diocese of Lafayette, State Contracts, and donations.
