General Announcements 

In-person and virtual informational meeting for helping at retreat for persons with special needs set for June 14

An informational meeting for those interested in helping at a retreat for persons with special needs will be held at St. Pius X Parish, 7200 Sarto Dr., in Indianapolis, from 7-8 p.m. on June 14. A virtual option will also be available.

The retreat, scheduled for July 23-24 at the Benedict Inn in Beech Grove, is being hosted by the archdiocesan Ministry to Persons with Special Needs. It is geared toward adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities. Volunteers often walk away from the retreat touched by the pure and joyful faith of their brothers and sisters with special needs.

Help is needed for one or both days with set up and clean up, morning registration, activity rotation, logistics, activity set up and as small group leaders working with 1-3 participants.

No special background or experience is required to volunteer, as many involved in the retreat have some related background—whether medical, educational, working for a service provider or having a family member with a disability—and a nurse will be on staff to administer medication.

For more information or to register for the informational meeting, contact Erin Jeffries at or 317-517-4744.
