In some way, most older adults experience one or more significant disabilities at the end of their lives. They are a vital part of our Church, and we seek to accommodate their needs and keep them involved.
Older adults are also invited to enter more deeply into their prayer lives and be leaders in their families and communities in living the devout life because they have more time available to them.
The Apostolate helps people with sensory disabilities (blind and/or deaf) to find a home in their parish and overcome obstacles to receiving the sacraments.
