       Owned by the Latin Patriarchal Vicariate in Amman, Jordan, the Centre is dedicated to serving people with disabilities and to raise the Awareness of the Jordanian Society on the Rights of People with Disabilities. The Centre provides educational and counseling services for the mentally retardation persons, physiotherapy and occupational therapy for physical disabled and early intervention unit for severe cases and autism.

In This words The Holy Father Benedict XVI Started His speech at Our Lady  of Peace Centre- Good Shepherd Church on 8thMay, 2009 “Your reputation for outstanding professional competence, compassionate care and resolute promotion of the rightful place in society of those with special needs is well known here and throughout the kingdom. To the young people present, I thank you for your moving welcome. It is a great joy for me to be with you…Of particular importance, I know, is the Center’s great success in promoting the rightful place of the disabled in society and in ensuring that suitable training and opportunities are provided to facilitate such integration. For this foresight and determination you all deserve great praise and encouragement!”
