Teaching the Catholic Faith

Special Needs Catechist/Parent training, Mass and Social

On October 19 at St. Mary's in Longview, TX we will be hosting a Special Needs Ministry event. We will begin with a parent/catechist training with guest presenter, Denise Knight. The program will include hands-on materials that work well with special needs students, such as pictures with movable parts to interact with, magnets to explain the Trinity, and using visuals to demonstrate concepts, class schedule visuals, etc. Denise will also share tips for handling different behavioral needs in the faith formation classroom. This presentation begins at 12 (lunch provided, just RSVP) all who attend the training are also welcome for Mass at 2pm. The Special Needs Masses are meant to provide families with the opportunity to worship together with the understanding that some of our children may respond to that worship differently. The day will end with a BINGO social. RSVP to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
