October is Disabilities Awareness Month and we try to be sensitive to people with disabilities here at Resurrection, but of course we could do better. We have wheel chair accessibility to all of our buildings, hearing aid devices for those who need them in Church and a signed Mass each weekend. Once, there was a hearing loop in Church which for some reason had been deactivated. We are looking into getting it reactivated so that anyone who has a hearing aid could benefit from this service. It is a costly fix of over $5,000.
Also, it has come to my attention, that as we age as a parish, more people are in need of parking closer to the building as walking distances become an issue. We are ordering signs that will be posted along the hall entrance side of the building that will make those spaces on weekends and special events specifically for the elderly and those with special mobility needs. One of the blessings we can give thanks for is our ability to walk so if you have that blessing, offer your walk through the parking lot as a prayer of thanksgiving and allow those with needs to park closer to the Church.
The second collection next weekend is for special repairs and we are designating the money of that collection to go to making these changes to benefit those with disabilities.
As I write this, I still have hope for the Orioles. By the time you read this you will know if my hope is founded or grounded out. Either way, it has been fun extending baseball into October.
