Roman Catholicism! A magnificent faith steeped with centuries of spirituality, humanity, tradition and history. So where does one begin to teach, to interpret, to propagate and to learn all that comprises the Roman Catholic Church of today?. How does one convey the grandness of being a child of God and the love experienced when belonging to a family of faith? How does one dispel common myths, concede one’s human nature, and welcome, educate, and encourage others on a journey of love, hope, and salvation?

This webcast is a journey, in and of itself, to begin the exploration of the Catholic faith giving special consideration to the Deaf community. Methods will be introduced to explain fundamentals of Church teachings, history, and tradition. This webcast will also provide avenues for exploring and experiencing the sanctity, the reverence, and the holiness of various aspects of the Catholic faith and spirituality. In addition, this webcast will take a close look at current signs and consider new sign variations for today’s Catholic setting. Whether a person involved in a form of Deaf Ministry, a Deaf Catholic, a Deaf person curious about the Catholic faith or a person seeking to expand one’s spiritual horizons, this webcast may provide unique insight and understanding of the many facets of the Roman Catholic Church.
