Open Hearts Open Doors. Ministry for Special Needs. 15791
Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH
Our Council Grand Knight and Deputy Grand Knight along with parish families and children with special needs participated in the parish first gathering at Holy Martyr’s Church in the Church Hall on August 7, 2019. Last month our parish Faith Formation Director invited us to attend Open Hearts Open Doors, Ministry for Special Needs. This evening the session opened with a fifteen minute prayer session led by our new Pastor Fr. Phil. Also in attendance this evening were two representative from the Portland Diocese, and Parish Faith Formation Director Georgette Dionne. The basic goal of this meet and greet this evening was to invite the people with disabilities to include shut-ins an opportunity to come and participate in some prayer time and to socialize with one another. Present this evening was 10 children who enjoyed playing games and coloring which Georgette supplied. There was also refreshments on hand. The knights who participated enjoyed themselves very much, and we look for the next Open Heart Open Door session to be held for Special Needs people. What a Blessing to be with these Special Needs Children.
