This conference, sponsored by Faithtree will take place at Antiochian Village in Ligonier, PA in a little more than 9 months. Here is their page for the conference: Removing Barriers Conference. The conference is for clergy.
Dr. John Boojamra of blessed memory has written that the two crucial ingredients in the successful socialization of a child- disabled or otherwise- are 1. faithful fathers and 2. parents that love one another. In 2015 Faithtree developed a 4 week curriculum for engaging men in the Orthodox Church, entitled Lionheart.
This is a great opportunity for our Church to take steps forward in incorporating persons with disabilities into the Body of Christ and our local parish churches.
