catholic tradition and disability

Catholic tradition

'You are perfect as you are.' Our Lady of La Vang is a purpose built Catholic educational facility for children and young people with intellectual disability. We value the intrinsic dignity and integrity of students, families, caregivers, staff, the environment and the community we serve.


We are inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus. Jesus welcomed everyone to the table of life, in particular the most vulnerable in our community. Catholic tradition calls us to be mindful of diversity and difference and to be active in justice making in our communities. In all that we do and be at Our Lady of La Vang we hope to be a community that both lives by and enlivens the quote from scripture:

"I have come that you may have life and have it to the full" (John 10:10).


"The desire for God is written into the human heart, because we are created by God and for God and God never ceases drawing us into intimacy."

Why we value what we do.

"I have come that you may have life and have it to the full" (John 10:10)
