Special Olympics

The Ministry with Persons with Disabilities has formed a Special Olympics team called the Wichita Saints! Any person with an intellectual disability who is eight years of age or older may join. Special Olympics Kansas is dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities. This team will have the additional benefit of praying together and being part of a faith community within a social setting. See below for information about each of our Special Olympics teams.
