Irish Bishops issue pastoral letter on disability and the Special Olympics

 The Irish Bishops' Conference has just issued a Pastoral Letter: Life in All Its Fullness to mark the European Year of People with Disabilities and the Special Olympics World Summer Games, which take place later this month. Over 200,000 copies of the Pastoral Letter will be available in parishes throughout the country this coming weekend 14/15 June. At the request of the Four Church Leaders, a prayer for the Special Olympics is also being distributed to parishes for use this weekend. The texts of both the Pastoral Letter and the Prayer are available on the website of the Catholic Communications Office www.catholiccommunications.ie which also provides Church-related information and resources regarding the Special Olympics.
