The Inclusive Ministries at OLMC seeks to welcome persons with disabilities and their families into the life of the parish, invite persons with disabilities to participate in liturgical, spiritual and social life; raise awareness about the gifts and needs of people with disabilities work to eliminate physical and attitudinal barriers, and support the Parish Advocacy Program.

The parish integrates children and adults with disabilities into the parish through catechesis and sacramental preparation. We partner with families and advocates to discern the best model of Christian formation including inclusion, self-contained or family centered.

The SPRED ministry (Special Religious Development) invites individuals with intellectual disabilities to fully belong to the liturgical and sacramental life of the parish. Small groups gather for prayer and community with a one on one mentor.

The BREATHE respite outreach hosts Fun Nights on Fridays throughout the year. Parents drop their children off for a fun night of activities and the parents get a change to BREATHE for three hours! Ages served: 5yrs to adult.
