LINCOLN (SNR) - A “Mass for People with Special Needs” will be celebrated at the Cathedral of the Risen Christ, 3500 Sheridan Blvd., Lincoln, at 9 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 4.
The Mass is open to all and the public is invited. Reserved seating will be available toward the front of church for those with special needs, and their families and friends, but it is not required. Registration to attend is not required.
The event is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus Council #9563. A reception will follow downstairs in Rectors Hall.
Dan Schlautman, pro-life coordinator for the Cathedral Knights of Columbus, said the intent of the Mass for People with Special Needs is to make all people feel welcome in the church, at Mass, and to let them know that the community supports them.
“We hope that this Mass will send the message that all of God’s children are welcome under the Church’s roof,” he said, “and that each person is an integral part of the parish family.”
Council #9563 is one of 17,000 Knights of Columbus councils that make up the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded in 1882 to assist working-class and immigrant Catholics in the United States, today the approximately two million members of the Knights put their faith into action through a broad range of charitable causes locally, nationally and internationally through financial contributions and hands-on service.
