Religious Education Classes

We offer religious education classes for deaf children and adults. Classes for children are offered at a variety of parishes in a mainstreamed setting. We work closely with both the Director of Religious Education and the classroom teacher to educate hearing persons to the special gifts and needs of the mainstreamed deaf student.

Self-contained Classes

Self-contained classes for deaf students are offered on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 - 8:00 PM at the Formation Center, St. John the Apostle Church in North Richland Hills. Classes are taught by deaf adults or hearing adults familiar with ASL and Deaf Culture. Hearing and deaf adults and children conclude the evening by meeting as a single community, serving as a support group for one another.

Religious Classes

For Hearing Children of Deaf Adults

Hearing children of deaf adults may enroll in Religious Education Classes at their home parish or at the deaf community parish. Parents are provided an interpreter as needed so they may participate in their child’s religious education experience. St. John the Baptizer Church in Bridgeport offers religious classes on Sundays from 9:45 - 11:00 AM .

Please contact the Deaf Ministry Coordinator if you are interested in RCIA, RCIC, Sacramental Preparation Classes, Religious Education Classes, Sign Language Classes or Helpful Resources.
