Catholic Charities offers an array of services and support to the Deaf and those with disabilities. Services focus on full inclusion and are designed to enable active engagement in the community.
We also offer services that help strengthen the community’s awareness, sensitivity and respect for those living with extraordinary challenges by offering:
- a speakers bureau for parishes and community groups
- awareness programs and workshops
- resources and referral services
- availability and accessibility of sacraments
The ministry also promotes Open Door liturgies and interpreted masses for the hearing impaired in parishes of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph.
