Disability Ministry Events

Parent Space/Parent Support Group

We're starting a new, online Support Group for parents of children with disabilities.  Every Monday, from noon to 1 pm for an online gathering. Join as you are able and for all, or part, of the one hour period!  Diocese of Kansas City/St. Joseph invited individuals/families for our diocese to join their event.

Supports for Caregivers in Rural Iowa Online workshop through University of California San Francisco

The workshop is accessible to rural caregivers whenever they want it, day or night. It teaches caregivers new skills to reduce their stress, take better care of themselves, manage difficult behaviors of their family member or friend, and plan for the future. Caregivers also get a workbook to keep, support from other caregivers, and information on community resources. In addition, Zoom and video capabilities are not required to participate in the workshop.

How can caregivers and others learn more? Interested caregivers can go to https://caregiverproject.ucsf.edu or call the toll-free number 1-833-634-0603 to get more information. Online registration is ongoing and will continue for months to come. Organizations that work in rural communities or have contact with caregivers can use that same contact information.
