MINISTRY WITH THE DEAF

Ministry to the Deaf in the Archdiocese is a far-reaching ministry that includes the entire family - deaf, hard of hearing, deafened, and hearing, family members. Pastoral and social service to this linguistic minority is provided through two trained Pastoral Care Workers, Norma LaCroix and Alanna McDonald. Their work is dedicated to the preservation of "Deaf Culture" within the Catholic community. Sacramental preparation, advocacy, monthly luncheons, hospital and nursing home visitations (all forms of Pastoral Care) are part of the ministry. Their ministry meets needs on an ecumenical basis when invited to do so
