Deaf Ministry

Our goal is to provide all deaf and hard of hearing persons and their family members accessibility to the Catholic Church in order that they may worship, receive religious education, minister to others and participate in all aspects of parish life.

We work with deaf persons of all ages and backgrounds, whatever the preferred mode of communication or educational needs. Our programs are specifically designed to meet the needs of deaf persons and offer these in both a mainstreamed and self-contained setting.
