Our Mission

We are challenged to minister as Christ ministered:
seeing beyond disability to ability; nurturing and challenging each person’s abilities; and advocating on behalf of all of the disabled so that they will be allowed full access to all of life and the sharing of God’s blessings on our church, country and community.

Working closely WITH OTHERS

The Apostolate is blessed to work under the direction of the bishop, as part of the Diocese of Madison, and along side Catholic Charities who provides for the needs of many people with disabilities.
