Deaf and Hard of Hearing Resources

Deaf/Hard of Hearing Ministry bridges barriers in communication, awareness, and understanding to bring parish services to our deaf brothers and sisters. We do this through advocacy, referrals, community outreach, education, and interpreting services. Our efforts increase awareness within our Church of the talents and needs of the deaf.
