Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The following questions and answers are in a familiar format within which we are communicating how St. Thomas a'Becket is responding to needs of our disabled brethren. If you have a question that is not answered here, please contact the Parish Office and we will get an answer to your question. If you have any feedback or comments, please leave a message for the Disability Concerns Committee chairperson in the Parish Office.

The Archdiocese of Detroit has prepared a booklet that includes resources for people with special needs. Download the Disability Concerns booklet.

You can also download information on Disability Etiquette prepared by our Committee.

  3. I am disabled and cannot find a parking spot. What should I do?
  4. When I see someone with a medical problem, what should I do?
