Faith & Light Prayer Groups

Faith and Light Prayer Groups provide the opportunity for persons with developmental disabilities to pray with their friends, families, and caretakers in an atmosphere of love and mutual support. These are ecumenical groups which follow the guidelines set forth by Faith and Light International.  Scripture reading, music, quiet reflection and shared prayer provide an opportunity to meet the spiritual needs of the participants.  Hospitality follows.

Two groups presently meet on Long Island:

The first group meets at Infant Jesus Church in Port Jefferson. This group meets from April through December on the first Tuesday of the month.  Call Ann at 631-473-2181 for information.

The second group meets at Holy Cross Church in Nesconset, usually on the first Friday of the month.  Call Marcia at 631-439-9724 for information.
