Loyola Press Opening Doors Award


CatechistsJourney.com ® is a service of Loyola Press, publishers of the Finding God Adaptive faith formation program.


The Loyola Press Opening Doors Award honors a parish community that demonstrates a spirit of belonging and engagement practices that facilitate the meaningful participation of people with disabilities in all aspects of their parish community. Resources like Adaptive Finding God help welcome all of God’s children into the life of the Church; we want to hear about your programs too.

The winning parish will receive a plaque as well as a monetary award to be used to continue efforts on behalf of parishioners with disabilities. The winning parish will also be featured in the National Catholic Partnership on Disability e-news and website.

The National Catholic Partnership on Disability and Loyola Press want to acknowledge and showcase parish communities that are ensuring that all people have the opportunity to participate actively and fully in the life of the Church.

Please visit the NCPD website for complete details and nominate a deserving parish today.
