An Orthodox Parish’s support for a disability ministry: LOUFEAT

St. Matthew the Evangelist

St. Matthew the Evangelist

A parish in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, St. Matthew the Apostle Orthodox Church,  is providing support for a ministry to persons with Autism- LOUFEAT. (LOUISIANA FAMILIES FOR EFFECTIVE AUTISM TREATMENT)

Here’s a noteworthy quote from a 2007 Parish Blog post:

As Orthodox Christians, we believe that all things in this life – our joys, sorrows, victories, and defeats – are given to us that through them we may work out our salvation. Learning to love, accept, nurture, and teach children with profound developmental disabilities can be a fearful and daunting task. But through such works of mercy, we grow in our love of God and neighbor, reflecting the Light that is Christ Jesus.
