Celebrating 50 years

Looking at our foundation and growth, we are thankful for all who make it possible to provide this ministry in the Diocese of Madison.

Our Mission

Works to promote the full inclusion of persons with disabilities in the life of the Church. Every baptized person, regardless of their abilities, has received a special vocation to holiness, and we strive to promote their participation in local parishes and diocesan events.

Working closely WITH OTHERS

The Apostolate is blessed to work under the direction of the bishop, as part of the Diocese of Madison, and along side Catholic Charities who provides for the needs of many people with disabilities.
