The Diocese Celebrates a Mass of Welcome and Inclusion in Recognition of Autism Awareness

On Sunday, April 28th, our Ministry With the Deaf and Persons With Disabilities celebrated a Mass of Welcome and Inclusion for persons on the autism spectrum and those with disabilities and their families. Father Hugh Bradley was the main celebrant and Kate Slosar signed the Mass in American Sign Language for the congregation. Mass was followed by a light reception and fellowship in the school hall of Holy Saviour Church of Saint Teresa of Calcutta Parish in Collingswood.    The Diocese of Camden offers Masses of Welcome and Inclusion throughout the six county area.  For a schedule of these Masses click on “Mass Schedules” on the sidebar  of  the  Ministry  With  the Deaf  and  Persons  Disabilities webpage.
