Promoting Inclusion: Samaritan Sisters Teach Academic, Vocational Skills

For his December prayer intention, Pope Francis has called for prayers for those with disabilities: “Let us pray that people with disabilities may be at the center of attention in society, and that institutions offer inclusion programs that enhance their active participation.”
