Deaf Ministry

Deaf Ministry at the Archdiocese of San Antonio


Deaf ministry provides pastoral ministry to and advocates for Deaf individuals in the Archdiocese by making accessible all aspects of the Catholic Faith. Through accessibility and providing the necessary resources, the ministry encourages deaf individuals to participate fully in the sacraments and all aspects of parish and diocesan life.
