The Special Needs Ministry is so proud of St. John Neumann Parish for being selected in 2014 to receive the Loyola Press Opening Doors Award for its physical accessibility and inclusion of individuals with disabilities in its parish life. More about this award, and a link to a video about the accessibility of the building can be found by selecting/clicking here. Long before our ministry was even started, much work went into making this parish a welcoming place for people of all abilities.

This history inspires us to continue the work of making sure everyone is fully able to be a part of our parish family.

Our mission is to enhance the Parish of St. John Neumann by accommodating, servicing, and welcoming with open arms, all members of our community with special needs, their families and their caregivers. We foster by example, an acceptance of all of God’s children; in the same way that Christ showed his love for us.
