Deaf Ministry

Deaf Ministry at the Archdiocese of San Antonio

The goal of Deaf Ministry is to provide Deaf and hard-of-hearing persons and their families access to the Catholic Faith in order that they may participate in all aspects of parish life including worship, the sacraments, religious education and ministry to others. Deaf Ministry also assists parishes in identifying needs and making plans to achieve accessibility goals.
