Religion

At St. Rita School for the Deaf, the Religion Department teaches a diverse student population which encompasses many faith experiences. The Religion Department’s primary goal is to help our students know, love, and serve God.

The Religious Education at St. Rita School for the Deaf follows the Archdiocesan Graded Course of Study. Our focus is to help our students develop spiritually, morally, and academically in order to become Christian citizens in our society. We nurture their growth through both classroom and real world experiences including a variety of opportunities to serve in the community throughout the school year.

We bring the story and message of Christ to life through Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Prayer Services, reenactments of the Nativity story and the Stations of the Cross. We also honor Mary in May with a “May Crowning” and celebrate St. Rita’s Feast Day with school-wide activities. Every liturgical service and dramatic performance is expressed in both American Sign Language and spoken English in order to be accessible to our  students who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or Apraxic.
