In the spirit of supporting and encouraging deaf Catholics living in Maine, the goal of the Catholic Deaf Ministry in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland is to assess the needs of the community and implement events, services and programs that will encourage deaf Catholics to be more active in their parishes; to share their gifts within the Catholic community and beyond; and to enjoy new communication, religious education and pastoral materials.
