What is Journey?

Journey is a program that embraces a unique mission: to teach and share the richness and fullness of the Catholic faith with persons ages six through adult with intellectual and developmental disabilities.



"The Journey program helps my daughter see the love of Jesus in the kindness shown during class as she continues to build a relationship with Him. It is also wonderful to have Journey Masses so the community sees what a wonderful gift each and every person is and that they bring many great things to our community. It is one more opportunity to continue her faith journey and gives her a chance to socialize which is something most people take for granted but it is difficult for those differently abled."

Theresa Weisse

Mother of Adult Friend

"Journey allows my child to learn about our faith on a level that he understands.  They teach him through many means: prayer, tangible, relational, written and sacramental.

Carrie Labinski,

Mother of 9 year old Friend


"The Journey program has brought our daughter a place of acceptance to learn of Christs' love in a Catholic community setting with other special children that are all on their own journey.  The volunteers are dedicated to teaching our kids our Catholic values at a level of understanding in which they can be more confident with songs, games and projects each at their own pace.  This involvement engages them and helps our kids see that our faith is indeed something special and models how to share it in our communities of students and adults."
