“The Church should be about community. The Church should be about inclusion. Often in the Church there seems to be quite a territorial sentiment about some of these things. When we are so territorial about something we think that we’re seeking to make it perfect, but actually, it starts to exclude and the Church is not an exclusive club!” Janine Scott-dos Santos is mom to Owen, a superhero boy with Autism. She runs her own HR business. Ricardo da Silva SJ talks to Janine about Autism, the joys and challenges of being a mom to a child with special needs and the impact this has had on her family and church life.
