Faith Formation for Adults with Special Needs (SN 5)

Course Level: Basic

Course Summary

Adults who have Intellectual Disabilities have spiritual needs. Many welcome the opportunity to become more aware of God’s presence with them when they have an appropriate catechesis. An appropriate catechesis, such as the one presented at the end of this course, will help them become, using one example, more knowledgeable of sacred articles that are part of Catholic prayer and worship at the Sunday liturgy. Hopefully this course will promote a better sense of belonging for them.

Rooted in the Gospel healings of Jesus, and stepping out of a dark history, many adults with developmental disabilities are now welcomed into a full life within the Catholic Church. Having been included in parish life in the recent past, and to hasten a better sense of belonging, adults with cognitive developmental disabilities can now be offered opportunities to enrich their faith.

Successful completion of this course earns 2.5 CEU's.
