The Pope blesses and supports the Paralympic Movement!

Pope Francis highlighted the importance the Paralympic Movement has for social inclusion at the ‘Sport at the Service of Humanity's First Global Conference on Sport and Faith’ convention last week in the Vatican.

Organised by the Pontifical Council for Culture (PCC), the United Nations (UN) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC), IPC President Sir Philip Craven and IPC Vice-President Andrew Parsons, as well as UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, IOC President Thomas Bach and PCC President Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi all took part in the event.
