Parish Liaisons

Would you like for your parish to have a Parish Liaison for Disability Ministry?  The parish liaisons meet 4 times a year to discuss ways to promote inclusion within the parish.  To add a liaison for your parish, or to check if your parish has one, contact Andie Gunter, agunter@evdio.org.

The next Parish Liaison meeting is February 8th
from 5:30-7:30pm (Central) at the Catholic Center.

Update:  SPRED Training coming soon.
