Building Inclusive Parishes

The South Bend "Chapter" of Building Inclusive Parishes (BIP) will hold its first meeting on Monday, August 14, at 6:30 p.m. at St. Jude Catholic Church, 19704 Johnson Road, South Bend.  The location is handicap accessible.  Please enter Door #13.

BIP is a grassroots movement that started in the Fort Wayne area in 2015.  Members of BIP have met with Bishop Kevin Rhoades and spoke to priests last September regarding their efforts.

Our mission statement:
"Through prayer, support, advocacy, and catechesis, we strive to be inclusive of all individuals with disabilities or special needs and help them know that they are welcomed, accepted, and necessary in contributing their gifts to our parish life."

Please come and meet other people who share these interests and want to help make our parishes more welcoming.  No RSVP is needed.
