Bringing Faith and Light into the lives of God's special people
- Written by David Myers
Faith and Light is a nation-wide program designed to offer faith, fun and friendship in a non-threatening atmosphere to developmentally and intellectually disabled individuals, their family and friends.
Organizer Edie Loughmiller hopes that other parishes will adopt the program for their community. Serving as chaplain for Faith and Light is Deacon Dwaine Lampe, who leads a prayer service at the gatherings and is often the stand-in for Jesus during skits. The afternoon gatherings also consist of games, song and dance, and plenty of time to enjoy sweet treats.
