Disabilities Ministry

All persons have dignity and are created by God in the image of God. This includes all people with physical, cognitive, learning, and emotional disabilities. We can work to include persons with disabilities into our communities, especially our churches. We do this in the way we community, structure our ministries and create welcoming spaces so that persons with disabilities are understood first and foremost as "persons."


If you have any questions or further needs connected Disabilities Ministry within the Diocese of Green Bay, please contact Mary Armbrust, Pastoral Care and Ministry Coordinator, at (920) 272-8300.

A Prayer for Persons Living with Disabilities

God our Father, who created all people in your image: give persons with physical, cognitive, or emotional disabilities opportunities to do all that they are able to, and strengthen them to overcome challenges. Jesus, who showed great compassion for those who suffer: comfort all who feel like their gifts are not used or that their value is not understood, so that they might take courage in your affection. Holy Spirit, who fills believers with all good gifts: help me to reach out to persons with disabilities through friendship, care, and working to be sure that our church includes them in everything that we do and to break down barriers to inclusion in society. We ask this in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
