REACH (Religious Education Apostolate for Christian Handicapped) is a program that welcomes children who want to feel a part of a faith community and want to learn more about God’s love.  The program meets twice a month on Mondays from 4:45 – 6:15. The REACH program helps students with disabilities play, work, and pray with others.  It teaches students that God loves, protects and provides for them.  The program is also able to prepare students to receive the sacraments.
