The mission of the Outreach to Persons with disAbilities is to facilitate the implementation of the Pastoral Statement of U.S. Catholic Bishops on People with disAbilities, which calls for “realizing the unique gifts that individuals with disAbilities have to offer the church” and society, and to advocate for the inclusion of persons with disAbilities in full participation of liturgical, sacramental and parish life.

The Archdiocese offers Confirmation Classes for persons with disabilities ages 16 and older. The classes take place in August, and the sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated at the annual Mass for Persons with Disabilities in September.
