Deaf people have created vibrant communities around the world, including active faith communities that contribute to a globally diverse Church. How do Deaf Catholics use language, community and culture to experience the faith?

Lana Portolano, author of the newly published "Be Opened: The Catholic Church and Deaf Culture" (CUA Press, 2020) and Professor of English at Towson University, Maryland, joins Holy Cross Deaf Studies Professor Stephanie Clark, an expert on Deaf culture, to explore the intersection of Catholic life and Deaf culture. ASL and voice interpretation will be provided.
