Special Needs Ministries

“People with disabilities are a gift for the family and an opportunity to grow in love, mutual aid and unity.”

Pope Francis 

The Inclusion Disability Ministry of the Diocese of Saginaw commits itself to advocate for the dignity, acceptance, rights and inclusion of all persons with special needs in church, school and pastoral ministries. The Ministry promotes full and meaningful participation of people with disabilities in all aspects of life in the Church and in society.
